Ever tried to mime opening a door in an improv scene and it looked more like you were doing a ribbon dance?  Ever tried to mime driving a car and it looked more like you were milking a robotic cow?  In this 4 week elective class, students will be introduced to techniques and tools from physical theater to help create realistic, detailed environments and objects for your improv scenes.   Particular concepts include: fixed point, push / pull, tension, and articulation.   We will explore how these tools can assist in making your longform improv scenes livelier, more fun to watch, and easier to play.
