Intro to Improv

January 12, 2019 - 1:00pm-2:00pm (ended)

Join us in the fourth floor story room to get creative with the art of improvisation! 

You'll learn the three basic rules of the craft - be spontaneous, make your partner look good, and build on your partner's idea - and in no time flat you'll be creating outrageous characters, improvising hysterical scenes and stories, and having the time of your life! Practicing improv enhances presentation and public speaking skills, develops interpersonal skills, and inspires creativity. Plus, it’s just plain fun. So, come and get your improv on with Synergy Theater’s free introductory workshop. You can do it! 

Instructor Kenn Adams is the Artistic Director of Synergy Theater, the East Bay’s home for improvisation, and the author of the book How to Improvise a Full-Length Play: The Art of Spontaneous Theater. He is the creator of the classic short form improv games Sit, Stand and Kneel and The Family Dinner (a.k.a. Ding/Buzz or Biography) as well as The Story Spine, a simple exercise for understanding story structure that has been embraced by improvisers, writers and teachers the world over. Kenn has been performing, directing, and teaching improvisation for more than 25 years.


For ages 18 and up. No registration, audition, or experience is required.
