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: Max 12 people per class / over 18 years old / please register below.
Schedule: The next round of classes will begin Sunday, February 4. 5:00-7:30 P.M. / 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.
The February GREEN Class begins Sunday, 2/4 at 5:00 P.M.
Note: 12 people per class / over 18 years old
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.
This is a drop-in class; there is no registration required. Just … drop in!
We’re looking forward to hosting another Family Improv class in March during Spring Break.
AND the All-City Improv Jam this summer.
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.
