Genre Style Improv INTENSIVE (Fri 8/13 – Sun 8/15)

Study and learn Nick’s philosophy on Genre style improv. Learn form, genre style and character. During this four week intensive you’ll learn how to play effective characters that will work in any genre. The tools you get are universal and mailable to any genre. Nick’s philosophy follows character play in genre more than the narrative itself. You’ll be able to learn how to develop and carry on character through the entire show. So you get to kill two birds with one stone..Character and genre!
