THEA 102 Improvisation

Prerequisite: THEA 101 or permission of the instructor (Second semester—odd years/4 credits)

This class is an introduction to long-form improvisation and "Harold" as developed by Del Close at Second City and iO in Chicago and UCB in New York. The student-improviser will be introduced to the fundamentals of improvisation: listening, trust, agreement and commitment; and come to understand callbacks, tag-outs, finding the game in a scene, "yes-and", swinging doors, edits, and montage; and each student will perform many Harolds for classmates and outside audiences.
