GAME OF THE HAROLD
Long-form improv workshop
Game of the scene and the Harold are considered as wholesome techniques and forms that require effort to comprehend. Nothing further from the truth! Also, they're very interconnected so you can learn the basics of both at the same time, while having fun and discovering new concepts with other people.
Through a step by step approach, during the three hours of the workshop you'll get a hold of the basic structure of a Harold, from the suggestion to the third beat; and within each step we'll review the components of game of the scene and how they apply throughout the form.
After that, you'll run at least a Harold by yourself with some minor sidecoaching adjustments that are needed so you can successfully take it to completion.
