Chicago is famous for grounded, honest, relationship-based improvisation scene work that produces deep laughs and deep sighs as the audience is moved to both. This style of work requires acting, listening, openness, patience, and responding through a shared process of give and take. This workshop will feature a deep dive into this process of two-person scene work that will bring improvisers discovery upon discovery. As those shared discoveries pile up, the improvised scene becomes deep, full and funny. It’s the Chicago way.
Flock Theatre invited Jonathan to teach this masterclass after having heard numerous raving reviews about his workshops, and the impact his teaching has made on experienced improvisers.
“The class by Jonathan has been a lot of fun and I’ve really enjoyed learning with him. While there is a lot I have learned, I do still feel like I’ve only scratched the surface and want to dig more into it.” – Katrina Peccini
