Come on a journey of exploration and dip your toe in the water with a Flying Pig Drop-in class. You and other newcomers will practice classic improv exercises like Zip Zap Zop and Sound Ball to loosen up your creative cranium and your tangled tongue. Prove without a doubt to your inner critic that you are indeed an artist and genius on every front! Get back in touch with make-believe and magic. Every “mistake” is celebrated with a big “woo-hoo!” Come once or come every week.
Note: 12 people per class / over 18 years old
Schedule: The next class is PINK and begins Sun, JULY 9th. Four weeks / One class per week / 2.5 hours per class.
At Flying Pig Improv, we’re going to take the time to learn the fundamentals and find the thrill of being in the moment. We make this easy by offering two different courses (PINK and GREEN) for four weeks each. It doesn’t matter in which order you take them but the pig recommends that you take both of them to strengthen your improv legs.
Short Form games are the stepping stones to more advanced scene-based games. Three-Headed Expert and New Choice are fun ways to learn to listen and react on the spot. Short Form practice will give you confidence and change the way you look at what’s funny.
Schedule: Now on Thursdays, 7-9:30 p.m. One class per week / 2.5 hours per class.
This will be an ongoing class; students can join at any time.
Price: $20 per class (no discounts available)
This is unscripted theater. Long Form is thrilling and unpredictable; a grown-up’s playground. You and your partners will create characters who know who they are to each other, where they are, and why they are there. What unfolds will be stories that have never been told and can’t be recreated. You’ll be addicted to saying, “Yes, and …” and you can’t imagine what you and your partners will imagine and build together.
Schedule: Sun, July 23 through Fri, July 28
Price: $675 for the class + $650-$1025 for room & meals
Take yourself to the high desert of New Mexico for this magical retreat; a big dose of improv in some of the most beautiful land in the world.
This improv intensive is for the first-time, dip-your-toe players as well as experienced improvisers who need a tune-up or some fresh feedback. We will play in both short and long forms and give you the opportunity to perform as well!
Sign up soon – space is limited for this popular event.
In PINK Short Form, we learn to play without so many words. In some improv games we secretly signal to our partners what they need to say to keep us out of trouble. In other games we use gibberish to heighten the players’ struggle (which also heightens the fun for the audience). The Short Form games we learn in PINK include Foreign Film, Location/Object/Weapon (LOW), Excuses, and many others.
GREEN Short Form focuses on space and object work. We don’t have props and costumes; no scenery or recorded soundscape. To lure our audience into our stories, we rely on the way we handle imaginary objects and the environment. The Short Form games we learn in GREEN include Freeze Tag, Lines from a Box, One-minute Fairy Tale among many others.
