Improv Master Class: What's Your Status?

Status plays a key role in scene interactions. Keith Johnstone thought playing with status transformed scene work, made scenes more authentic and actors more observant. This improv master class will explore the concept of status, play with status shifting, and identify players' own tendencies towards low and high status characters. For intermediate to advanced improvisers, students will leave this class understanding how status can be used to add depth to both characters and scene work.
