Do you know the thrill of watching a scary movie? That physical chill, the itch that comes with not knowing what will happen, but knowing that something bad will happen?
In this course, we will explore how to make our improv scary, how to create that lingering feeling of unease and how the simplest stories can unravel in a way that is unexpected for the audience. We will learn all about suspense, about the power of music over words in the genre of horror, and about committing to strangeness.
If you liked Nope or Get Out from Jordan Peele, It Follows from David Robert Mitchell or some of M. Night Shyamalan’s work, you will love this class!
The structure explored in this course will be semi-directed—in a similar fashion to the Main Production of March 2022, I Will Survive—in order to allow the players a full immersion and freedom to explore their characters and the situation in a unique experience.
