C.J. Guzan & Craig Knit have been performing together since 2010, and over the last four years, have performed many, many shows as a two-man Improv team called Impromp2. Their extensive improv, acting, writing, and musical experience has led them to the creation of a show that not only prides itself on being intimately and wonderfully inclusive, but also completely different every single time. Impromp2's mission not only aims to satisfy well-traveled improv enthusiasts, but also actively works to bring high-quality improv to parts of Wisconsin that otherwise have never seen nor experienced such a wonderful art form!
Craig & C.J. want to share their hard-earned knowledge with the public in a thorough and hilarious improv intensive. This one-day course will teach students (ages 15 - 100):
-Improvising With A Friend: Learn the methods and finer points of performing intelligent and entertaining two-person improv scenes.
-Insightful Character Creation: How to create a fully developed and realistic character in an instant.
-Group Mind: Moving beyond being an individual, and becoming a unique contributing piece of the collaborative whole. Many minds become one.
-Make The Choice. Love The Choice: Making decisions quickly and confidently, all while being mindful of the intricacies of the situation at hand.
-Everyday Improv: How to utilize Improv skills to streamline and improve your everyday life.
-Improv Today: How to express yourself, on and off stage, in ways that elevate those around you and leave them feeling wonderful.
This intensive will delve deeply into the intricacies of performing live improv, all while having the time of your life! Each workshop purchase includes a FREE ticket to the Impromp2 Show on Friday, October 19, following the workshop. C.J. & Craig put their backs into making this event an insightful and absolutely hilarious experience for all! Come on down to The Art Garage and enjoy a Saturday with two of the kindest and funniest guys in Wisconsin! See you there!
