Improv Level C: Character Work

Improv Level C is the third class in the beginner improv program at The Second City.

What will I learn?

Students learn how to improvise characters. They explore creating characters through internal motivations, like point of view, status, wants and intentions, and external ones, like experimenting with physicality. Students also continue to explore scene work in Improv Level C, learning how to perform three-person scenes, how to find the beats of scenes, and how to understand and apply subtext to scenes. They learn how to make choices in scenes that help define their character.

What will I do in this class?

Students complete active exercises that help them explore different ways to create and sustain characters. Students also continue to hone the skills necessary for doing strong scene work and building ensemble.

Will there be a performance?

There is a brief demonstration for an audience at the end of the term.

Why is this class important?

Level C introduces students to the skills needed for character work, an element essential to dynamic improvised scenes.
