Class Description

What happens when we sit in a circle and chant together for thirty minutes? Or play a single rhythm game for an hour? Or shadow our own characters by narrating a whole show in the third person? I have no idea. So let's find out! A place to try out all the weird stuff we just don't have time for in regular classes, EXPERIMENTS IN GROUP MIND is all about experimenting with different ways for a group to connect. It's a place to try out all the strange stuff we just don't have time for in a regular class. Each week we'll pick a different acting exercise, meditation, or theater game to see what effect it has on our play together. Because why the hell not?

Instructor: Louis Kornfeld

Louis Kornfeld began improvising way back in 2003, when both his phone and online presence were at the forefront of millennium culture. He's been a proud member of the Magnet Theater since it opened its doors, having logged countless hours as a performer, intern, house manager, member of 'The Boss,' Megawatt director, and (for the past twelve years) teacher of improvisation. What can he say? He loves it.

In addition to improv, Louis is also an award winning writer and actor whose work is routinely featured on 'The Truth' podcast. Check it out, why don't you?

You can see him performing every Sunday night with the great Rick Andrews in 'Kornfeld & Andrews.' They have some short videos online you might enjoy.

He thinks you're doing great.
