Spend your Saturday afternoon jumping into longform improv and learn a brand new team with seasoned teacher, David Escobedo!
Deceptively difficult, The Onion is about adaptation and recall. Much like the Slacker, the more playful the team the more creative the show will be. This will challenge the skillful improv performer’s sense of awareness. The number of cast members on stage determine the scene, so the first person on stage has a large role to fill. Smart moves make good shows. Smart moves and ensemble makes GREAT shows. The Onion will teach you how to be adaptable and have fun in being flexible. How will you make sense in the chaos? And possibly discover the story together?
Attendees of this workshop perform as part of a longform showcase in the evening of Saturday 21st September.
David Escobedo has been coaching/performing improv since 1995. He began a team right outside of high school called “The ORPHANS” which ran for 13 years. Since then he’s directed street mime troupes that have broken into Christmas Parades and performed with The Mortified Guide available on Netflix. Having just moved from Hollywood with his wife and two cats, David is finished up his MA in Drama with an emphasis in improv. His MA paper was on the individual improv performer’s voice being the most valuable thing to bring into the show.
