Characters you recognize
Characters should be familiar and yet new. How do we do this? Lee White guides you through simple character creation and helps maintain and expand these characters for both long and short form. Strong characters that make your audience fall in love with them and come back over and over. Looking at the choices we make as improvisers and how to make better, stronger choices to develop great characters for the stories you want to tell.
Polish your Monologue
What does it take to be a great monologist? How do you capture the audience and hold them with your words? Lee will be sharing his insight to help you explore ideas and techniques for better monologues. Using some systems you already know from improv (and a few you probably don't) and applying them to inspire new and creative monologues. Using emotions and laughs to capture the audience's heart.
Listening and acceptance
Listening is one of the most important skills an improviser can have, yet too often our scene partner's words and the meanings behind them are neglected. Can we turn down our ego and open our ears and eyes to what is really being said? Yes we can and we will be rewarded with applause. With a focus on listening to our scene partner and accepting their offers this workshop will have you giving more and making your partner look like the star.
Stories are for Humans
This workshop shows you how to create your scenes moment by moment, helping you to develop the skills for storytelling and strong characters. The scene work is the basic building block of any show. Lee helps you to recognize bad habits in your improvisation and gives you the tools to get out of them, helping you break down storytelling to its simplest and driving you to make them as complex and colourful as your imagination lets you.
Meet Long Form
Lee will guide you through some basic long form structures to give you a taste of the complicated but exhilarating world of long form improv.
