“The First 30 Seconds”

Legendary improv instructor and our good buddy from Chicago, Joe Bill, is stopping by Magnet to teach a one day workshop on Sunday, September 3rd, from 1-4 pm. Joe will be teaching a new version of his newest workshop “The First 30 Seconds” which focuses on the verbal, emotional, physical, and psychological content of the first 30 seconds of scenes to help you get optimally grounded and connected to what’s happening REGARDLESS of the approach/style in which you’re playing.

In Improvisation, so often, the ending is in the beginning. Let Joe help you begin your scenes in service to yourself, your scene partners, and the show you’re doing. He’ll show you how to attack the first 0-15 & 15-30 seconds (The Golden Time) of a scene. This includes the mindset of readiness, playing with energy variety for initiations, strategic & emotional listening, awareness of interpersonal vs. circumstantial dialogue, and tracking the context through patterns that you establish right from the start. Everyone will walk out of this workshop with at least a couple of new tools that they can begin to employ immediately.

Interested? Come play! Cost is $50. Just email Joe to reserve your spot! Email jbillscp [at] yahoo [dot] com
