One Day Workshop: Finding the Love


Date: Saturday, December 7, 1-4pm

Prerequisite: One season on a HIT house team or an equivalent level of experience

WORKSHOP: Finding the Love

Conflict is integral to fictional stories--man vs. nature (Captain Ahab and the whale), man vs. man (Neo and Agent Smith), man vs. self (Hamlet), etc. These basic tensions provide the backbone to some of the most memorable tales in the human storybook.

As improvisers, we are aware of the importance of conflict in storytelling, but sometimes we struggle with incorporating it in our improv scenes in meaningful and interesting ways. This workshop will help advanced performers understand the importance of love in conflict, how do discover it, and how to play it!

Prerequisite: One season on a HIT house team OR an equivalent level of experience. Please email if you have questions about eligibility.
