WORKSHOP: Silence & Emotion w/Jim Zarling (Richmond, VA)
A 3 week course culminating in a show!
Dates: Saturdays – 1/9, 1/16, & 1/23 + show on Sunday 1/24
Place: The New Movement, Red Room
Cost: $100 (for any student who has at least a beginner’s level experience in long form improv)
This workshop will have you starting scenes by focusing on emotion and movement. Scenes start as soon as you are on stage and are interesting even without words. By taking your time and focusing on your emotion, you will find your scenes can carry more weight and have more staying power.
Over the course of the workshop we will focus on starting your scenes with strong emotions and allowing that emotion to guide your scene. You will also learn about discovering scenes, rather than creating them. Instead of coming on stage with an idea for a scene come out and see what develops between you and your scene partner.
Jim Zarling is a multi-talented performer who brings together a mixture of stand up and improv comedy to the stage that results in a unique comedy experience that is fast-paced, off-the-cuff and always hilarious. He has traveled around the country with Richmond’s Coalition Theater, performing at the Boston Improv Festival, The Del Close Marathon and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. As a standup comic he has opened for Jared Logan, Myq Kaplan, Tig Notaro and Todd Barry.
