SELL IT!  with Craig Cackowski                         San Francisco Improv Fest

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Energy, confidence and decisiveness are 90% of the battle in improv, i.e. it’s not so much what you say as when you say it and how you say it. How comfortable you are on stage will have a huge impact on how you’re perceived by the audience. Whether you’re a veteran improvisor or new to the artform, this is the perfect workshop for the performer who needs to practice owning their impulses and delivering them with confidence right away. Good for new improvisors and all skill levels.

This class is limited to 16 students. Location of class will be in the vicinity of downtown San Francisco.



Relationship Dynamics with Carla Cackowski          San Francisco Improv Fest

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Looking at your scene partner and deciding right away that they’re the most important person in your character’s life is a great place to start from when thinking about “relationship” in improvisation. The challenge is to avoid talking about what you’re doing and instead focus on how you’re feeling to sustain a strong relationship onstage. This workshop will help you make quick, specific choices about how well you know the other person so the audience understands why these characters are together. We’ll explore different “types” of relationships we’ve often seen in improv and discover new options to explore these characters in a dynamic way.

This class is limited to 16 students. Location of class will be in the vicinity of downtown San Francisco.
