Flexible Genre Triptych

I wanted to offer the possibility to take longer courses and workshops to people like me: people that have an irregular life. You may be an independant, a freelancer, working shifts with a team, working in the evenings, or any other job where taking 6 Monday nights off isn’t possible—this is for you!

This flexible package is an experiment: offering a pack of 6 classes around genres (2 class per genre/teacher) over the course of 6 weeks, but where the classes are scheduled depending on the participants! It’s a bet, a challenge and will definitely be a puzzle for me, but I’m up for it, if you are up for it too! With you help, your good will and your participation, here we are, for the first edition.

I brought together three amazing teachers and friends that I respect immensely for their work and love as friends. I met Inbal over multiple festivals and events accross Europe, and when she offered to study Telenovelas, I was as intrigued as I was excited! Katy and I met a few years back, and then more and more, and we share many common loves, including the one for stories, science fiction and spooky stuff. Stephen King is perfect with her! And the third one is the amazing Rohit that I met during the world tour in Mumbai. His work as a sceneplay writer (for example for this little online streaming service: Netflix) is pretty amazing and I admire very much his dedication to improv! Basically, I can’t wait for you to meet them.

For the rest, it goes like this:
– You get as excited as me
– You subscribe and pay your subscription
– You fill in the calendar with all your availabilities
– I draw the schedule of the 6 classes and send you the chosen dates
– You enjoy this awesome course with 3 brilliant international masters!

Hope to see you in!

Telenovela! What?!

with Inbal Lori

Yes, I know, it’s cheap and cheesy and not what you would call “high art”. But do you also realize how much fun this is? Can  you also see the challenge?

It’s all about playing the archetype in a bigger than life yet a believable way. It is about exaggerating but staying truthful, it’s about doing something ridiculously over the top that can still be touching.
This is an invitation to play characters, emotions and situations bigger than life, far away from you, in a committed, grounded way. It is an opportunity to stretch the limits of what we usually do in a scene and find out how to beautifully work with it.

Let’s splash some colours on that screen!

2 classes (TBD) between Apr.1 and May 16.
