The Second City, Comedy Sportz and iO theater Chicago
Tøyen Impro proudly presents guest teacher Jonny Nelson from Second City and Comedy Sportz Chicago!
This is Jonny's first time visiting Norway and he'll be teaching two 5 hour workshops:
Workshop 1: Who are you? Who, who? Who, who?
Ever stuck as to what to do or talk about in a scene? This workshop focuses on developing the "who" as the answer to that problem. When you know the template of the character, your wants, point of view, and who you are, then you will no longer feel lost trying to "figure the scene out".
This workshop teaches you to focus on developing strong characters as a way to navigate scene work.
Saturday June 15th
10am - 3 pm (10:00 - 15:00), break included.
Workshop 2: Sooooo Emo
This workshop teaches you how to use emotion as the "magic bullet" to finding your scene. Stop talking about things that don't matter while desperately trying to come up with a joke. Instead learn how to create compelling well acted scenes that utilize emotion to raise the stakes, heighten the comedy, cause the audience to invest, and guide your choices.
Learn to play with emotion to help you find the arch of your scene.

11am - 4 pm (11:00 - 16:00), break included.
