WORKSHOP - The Bat: More Than Just a Harold in the Dark, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, 2-5pm


Instructor: Tyler Chick

Prerequisite: Improv Level 3 or equivalent

Of all the examples of long form improv, the Bat is one of the most misunderstood. Often described simply as "a Harold in the dark," the potential of the Bat and the specific skills involved are far-reaching and applicable to the standard Harold as well as many other forms.

Join veteran HIT performer Tyler Chick in this one day workshop that will focus not only on the Harold form but development of sideline support, scene painting, translating physical scene-work to an audio format, and much more.
