Two-Person Scenework Weekend Intensive with Katy Schutte

Saturday 11th June – Sunday 12th June

10:00 – 17:00

With only two performers, how can you move fluidly from one scene to another, how do you hold more than two characters in one scene, what can you do with object and environment and what is your show’s dynamic?

Working on techniques for rehearsing and performing two-person improvisation, this workshop builds your trust and skills around that one other person.

You can bring a duo partner if you wish, but you do not need one to attend.

You’ll receive personal notes (if you want them) to continue your learning beyond the weekend.

“I took two of Katy’s workshops at Neverending Improv Festival in Bucharest: Ensemble Bodies and Game of the Show. […] We had an absolute blast diving into some really great exercises and Katy’s enthusiasm created an awesome atmosphere in our group. Game of the Show was such a fun workshop! I still look back and laugh at some of the scenes and characters we created: our Tom Hasselhoff spy thriller is one of my favourite memories of the festival. I feel this workshop gave us practical tools we can use to create new shows and I can’t wait to get practising them with my group.”
