IMPROV 501

IMPROV 501: The LongForm Toolbox

Building off Harold learned in 401, students explore a handful of core formats that highlight the impressive variety of approaches and structures available to advanced improvisers. 501 uncovers longform universals with near-limitless applications. Discover the many intersections between shortform and longform and everything-in-between form. Dive into musical improv as an extension of familiar improv fundamentals. Through the exploration of formats including Armando, Living Room, JTS Brown, and ImprovBoston's own Resident Cast structures, 501 paves the way to IB's signature AllForm (The Mainstage) in 601.

Each session ends with a Student Showcase.
