Socap Dramatic Improv Core Program
Core Program caters to non-performers and performers.
The Social Capital style of improvisation is rooted in character and truth. Whether you’re an improviser wondering why you’ve hit a plateau, an actor who wants to get better at auditions, a professional who wants to be a more effective communicator, someone who wants to get better at human interaction, or if you’re just interested in human beings, this program is for you.
Core 1: Connections (Formerly Drama I)
Core I focuses on dealing with overcoming our fears/anxiety/doubts. It’s about communication with other people. It’s about letting go of judgement. It’s about finding the joy of existing in the moment. The same skills that makes great improvisers, makes great people.
NEXT CLASS TBA
Core II: Artist Voice (Formerly Drama II) with Ralph MacLeod
Core II continues the exploration of character and what defines a character. We look at such things as status, point of view, emotional life, wants, needs, and arcs.
6 weeks starting Nov 11th
Core III: The Hero’s Journey (formerly Drama III)
Core III focuses on creating stories based on the story circle (Hero’s Journey). Topics will include ‘the world as it is’, finding a main character or characters, A and B plots, call to action, the unfamiliar world (down the rabbit hole), the journey home, and the internal and external journey. Come create magic.
Masterclass Program caters to performers (improvisers and actors) only.
Applicants wishing to join the Masterclass must apply and, if necessary, audition. The Masterclass Series is for those who are ‘serious’ about improvisation. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This Masterclass focusses on three key elements – to work always in the moment, to develop your own voice as an artist, and to work on the Story Circle (Hero’s Journey). The ultimate goal is for students to create and perform a three-act structured play.
