About the Workshop
When it comes to flexing your short-form improv muscles, do you find yourself in scenes with slow starts, middling plots, and unsatisfying endings to games? Unfortunately, it’s all too common for short-form to suffer from just being “shorter long-form.” The KISSing Short-form tools introduce fundamentals that will leave you with actionable tips you can use to tighten up your improv. Through a visceral and energetic approach, this 2-hour session will challenge participants to explore short-form improv in a way that excels at bringing out the beauty in storytelling, character development, and emotional realism.
