Improvisation Theatre Class

Good Shepherd Episcopal Church

Berkeley, CA 94710

Welcome to our Improv Theatre Class,

We meet on Saturdays from 10am-1pm in the Parish Hall behind the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church on 9th Street at Hearst in Berkeley, CA.

Doors and kitchen open at 9:45am. Please consider stopping by early to help set up, enjoy a cup of tea and the company of your classmates.

Newcomers are welcome to attend any class.

Please contact Mike Dempsey with any questions or concerns.

Classes are offered on a dana (generosity) basis.

This week we will focus on listening and taking things slowly. With luck, we’ll hit that sweet spot between high energy and easy confidence. There’ll be a lot to get through. So please come on time. We’ll warm up right at 10am and then dive into scene work.

Until Saturday, I leave you with the following:

“Be moved by your scene partners.” — Viola Spolin

What then is needed is a qualitative change in me, a shift in the center of my existing, from the concern expressed by the everyday chatter of my mind toward the concern expressed by my participation in and my falling for the palpable mystery of timeless love that one tastes in aesthetic apprehension.” — Bernard Lonergan

“Off the tip of his tongue I took each tasty love word and swallowed it whole for my own.” — James Broughton

Much Metta,
