Six Degrees of Separation


This two-session workshop will teach an improv form inspired by the 1990 play (and 1993 film) Six Degrees of Separation ˆby John Guare. As in the play, the form begins with a pair of characters telling a story directly to the audience. The story provides the form's "spine" from which we will cut back and forth to the action being described. (In this way it is similar to a Spokane/Pretty Flower but with more of a narrative aspect.) I think the direct address and rapid pace will work especially well on Zoom!
