ABOUT THE CLASS:
The Slacker is a longform improvised form built around the use of tag outs to transition to new scenes. It is similar to a La Ronde, but with no restrictions with regard to the order of tag outs or the number of characters one might play. The form has been attributed to the team Beer Shark Mice. It was brought to New York where it transitioned to a two person source scene to generate ideas and information and then a series of shorter scenes or tag outs that follow tangental ideas, characters, premise ideas from the source scene. Generally we never return to the first two characters from the source scene just the info they generated.
The form is exceptionally flexible and is well suited for a wide range of team sizes, styles of play, time constraints and even stage sizes.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Amey Goerlich trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC and was a performer there for 16 years. She now teaches and performs at The Westside Comedy Theatre with Improv Famous and Woman Aren’t Funny.
