Intro to Viewpoints for Improvisation - SOLD OUT

w/ Oliver Georgiou (Toronto, Canada)


As improvisers we're often expected to be the actor, writer, dramaturge, and director of our own scenes. How can you balance all of those roles while continuing to remain present in the scene, and out of your head?


Viewpoints are a simple set of elements that are always in play whether or not you're paying attention to them, but that can be easily manipulated by the actor through training and awareness.

  • You are the actor. Acting is reacting, and there is so much to react to if your mind & body are ready to listen and follow your impulses.
  • You are the writer. Dialogue is a script, and a well-written script can use emphasis & subtext to tell a story with the simplest of words.
  • You are the dramaturge. Less is more, and with so many offers to choose from it's up to you to decide what's entertaining & interesting.
  • You are the director. The world is a stage, but unless you know how to stand on it nobody gives a shit what you say.
