The Syracuse Improv Collective knows what you need. You need a four-hour intensive workshop on the Game of the Scene with the Upright Citizen Brigade Theater’s Brandon Gardner. With an hour break in the middle. For the low, low price of $60. On a brisk Sunday, October 19 afternoon from 2p-7p with a one hour break for tea. At the Tyrol Club in Solvay? That’s what’s up.
This two-part workshop will introduce the concept of The Game of the Scene, the central component of UCB’s approach to long form improv. Through exercises and scene work students will come away with a knowledge of how to recognize the first funny or unusual thing in a scene and then heighten and explore it to give their scenes a clear comedic focus. This workshop is appropriate for people with no experience with Game and those who are looking to deepen their understanding.
Brandon has been a teacher and performer at UCB in New York City since 2007. Currently Brandon performs weekly with his teams The Improv Nerds, A Tribe Called Yes, and The Curfew. He’s a senior instructor who has helped develop the training center curriculum and he is the performance director for UCB’s Touring Company. He’s taught workshops at colleges and theaters all over the world.
