Interviews, Standing and Sitting: Finding the Game in Someone Else’s Story
with Jeremy Brothers

Some of the most well-known aspects of an Improv Asylum revue are the “Day in the Life” and “Interview" pieces. In this three-hour workshop, students will develop confident hosting in both personae and character interview styles, aggressive listening to audience participation in order to parse information in an interview to interpret and build upon an individual’s story. Students will work in break out groups to create their own unique interview structure. By the end, everyone will have the fundamental concepts of how to attack a interview to create either a linear narrative or abstracted series of scenes.

This class is limited to ten people and is intended for students enrolled in Improv Asylum's Training Center Levels 3 and above. Students with similar experience may ask to register by contacting admin@improvasylum.com with an email describing their background and training.
