Narrative Improv

Narrative Improv

Find out how to apply narrative to any scene or improvised show—without being in your head about it! Learn story structure beyond the basics so that you can recognize and utilize it in your work. Students will learn the ins-and-outs of storytelling, exploring common story structures from ancient fairy tales and legends to contemporary movies, applying their new skills to expertly weave together a narrative-based, format-free, online improvised performance.

This class culminates in a final online graduation performance.

What People Are Saying:

  • I am astounded at this unique process based upon trust in our ‘natural storyteller’ and playful impulse  to create an improvised story. Amanda takes us on a journey through storytelling. She pulls each one of us out of our heads to reach a natural state of play and ease through group exercise and personal homework. In Long Form Narrative, I have been challenged to find my own story, and to fully trust in myself as an actor and ensemble member. Everyone should take this class who is interested in honing his or her improvisational skills, or to go deeper into the craft—Do it!
