Impro Raises the Theatrical Bar | AMERICAN THEATRE

Mon, 11/24/2014 - 08:01 -- rprice

In the years since, I’ve been privileged to watch Impro rehearse and I’ve seen the company perform UnScripted takes on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Stephen Sondheim and John Ford. (They also do Tennessee Williams, Charles Dickens and L.A. noir, among others.) The beloved authors and genres they enrich are both refreshed and irrevocably altered by their touch. It is the most impressive sort of homage—the kind that tells you these improvisers are essentially slumming in some literary neighborhoods (sorry, but Rod Serling never wrote anything as good as Impro’s riffs on his themes).

Project 'Black & White' | Indiegogo

Fri, 09/26/2014 - 13:26 -- rprice

A modernized film noire detective story. Project Black and White follows the story of Terry Hensen, a private detective who is hired to help a man find his lost wife and kid. Terry soon finds himself surrounded by lies and deceit as an underworld of drugs and crime washes over him. We've worked hard to include tropes and nods to classic noire films, such as character archetypes "The hard-boiled detective", "the Mentor", "the Femme Fatale", and devices like the internal monologue, brooding jazz music etc.

These are improv games, game handles, Warm-ups, Icebreakers and improv exercises. Each of these may belong in one or more improv game Categories. Some improv games, known by a particular name, are actually minor variations on a broader improv game. For those, the link will refer to the broader game handle, and you'll find the particular sub-format indexed here indicated in bold in the text. For an example, take a look at Scene Replay.

Harvard Gazette: Augusto Boal's 'Theatre of the Oppressed'

Thu, 02/06/2014 - 08:41 -- rprice

n effort to bring together artists and scholars to make positive contributions to civil society. "Students who are interested in the humanities sometimes become discouraged because they don't see the contribution they can make," said Sommer. "We tell them, no, you are precisely what is needed to make social investments, to develop a web of cultural activities that weaves together civil society." Cultural Agency carries out this work by hosting conferences, lectures, and workshops, and by coordinating internships, publications, and academic learning with community service.
