Class Description

Fairy tales are more than just kid’s stories. At their best they’re able to capture the kind of complicated and paradoxical emotions we usually only encounter in dreams. And as part of an oral tradition going back thousands of years, the best way to experience these stories is to tell them out loud. In this eight week class we’ll be applying a variety of improv techniques to traditional folk and fairy tales (we’re not making up our own stories!), using exercises in narration, character, and space work to explore the different ways we can bring these stories alive. Prerequisite: Level 4 or higher.

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 fifteen 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.
