Theatre Lab: Collaboration and Improvisation. Using the techniques of improvisation and group collaboration, students will explore what it means to create a story from nothing. Emphasis will be placed on the group process, knowing that teamwork is a key to successful storytelling. Basic improvisation techniques will be taught to facilitate the collaborative nature of the art. Students will learn to use ideas and how to heighten and explore themes in order to make a basic story an extraordinary one. The cost is $650 per day; based on 4 classes per day.  The maximum number of students in this lab should be sixty (60).  Other scheduling available on request.
