The Nursery/Maydays Online Improv Elective: Playing Slow with Bill Arnett

Description: This Open workshop runs Saturday 12th September, 2pm - 4.30pm BST/GMT+1

Open - A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.

Playing Slow (without being boring) - Playing slow is more than improvising slowly. It requires an appreciation of the subtitles of human behavior. By leveraging the small shifts that occur from moment to moment we can turn a thirty second scene into a three minute scene.

Bill Arnett, founder of the Chicago Improv Studio and author of The Complete Improviser, is known as a good-natured teacher with an empowering approach to improv. He started improvising at the University of Florida in 1992 before moving to Chicago in 1998. He has been a part of several acclaimed ensembles including People of Earth, Maximum Party Zone and 3033. After 12 years of teaching at the iO Theater and 18 months as the Training Center Director Bill left to start the Chicago Improv Studio, a stage-focused training and performance company that takes a non-traditional approach to improv.
