ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Individual talent makes a scene good, but working as a team makes a scene great. In this workshop we will explore what it takes to be a true ensemble member. We will practice techniques of both verbal and non-verbal collaboration, staying in-synch with your scene partner, playing off each other’s strengths, and delivering a performance that is larger than the sum of its parts. At least part of the class will focus on working as an ensemble to create strong environments.
This workshop is great for those of you who are familiar with the foundational elements of improvisation and want to take your improv skills to the next level. If you’re considering starting, or have already started, your own troupe, then this is the perfect class for you (however this is not a prerequisite)
Rish Sanghvi has been studying, performing and teaching improvisation in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007. In that time he has brought innovative and culturally diverse formats to the stage including improvised Bollywood, and improvised kung-fu. In founding a few successful improv troupes (and several questionable one’s) he has developed a curiosity for exploring what makes and ensemble tick. Rish willbe performing at this year’s Improvaganza with “Five Deadly Improvisers”
