Go For It!
It’s time to stop thinking so much and just go for it!
This workshop is designed to get you out of your head and into the scene. Improv is about trust – trusting your partner, and most importantly, trusting yourself. And like editing, it’s a skill we can learn.
You know those bold moves you love seeing but never seem to make? Well, now is the time to focus on the skill that helps you make those moves. Focus on confident choices, reckless agreement, and unapologetic support. Go for it!
If you feel stuck playing the same 4 or 5 characters, or can't seem to get out of your comfort zone, take this class!
We will cover any and every way to create the foundation of a great character: Using your body, voice, emotions, subtext, status, goals, environment and much more.
By the end you'll be creating vulnerable or extreme three dimensional characters in every scene you do!

Tim Soszko performs with the tim&micah project, Bri-Ko (an all silent sketch comedy group) and The Deltones (a musical improv group). He teaches all sorts of classes with Second City, IO Chicago, The Actors Training Center, Loyola University and Columbia College to name a few. Tim is also a voiceover artist, writer of sketch comedy, director of many sketch and improv groups, and a producer of the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.
