Chicago: Clowning for Improvisers & Sex and Violence COMBO

  • The Playground Theater 3209 North Halsted Street Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

Receive a discounted rate by signing up for both Chicago workshops and get a whole lotta physicality and passion in one day. 

CLOWNING FOR IMPROVISERS: Clowning skills are useful for all levels of improvisers to get more comfortable with physicality and playfulness onstage. Clowns generally aren’t big talkers, so much of the art of clowning is about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this workshop will teach you some ways to bridge that gap in your performance. **Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Get ready to sweat!**

SEX AND VIOLENCE: Want to tell passionate love stories or get into wild fist-fights? From stage kisses to slaps, intimate moments to violent outbursts, this workshop will teach you the down and dirty ways to safely and sensitively show intimacy and violence onstage. After this workshop, you’ll be rarin’ to fall in love onstage or get into a bar brawl in a rollicking Western!

  • Price: $50
  • Prerequisites: This workshop is for more experienced improvisers who have taken a few classes and already have scene work skills.
