JTS Brown: Two Day Workshop Intensive with Nick Armstrong
Duration: 1 class session
This two-day intensive is designed to give you a basic understanding of the “form” known as "J.T.S. Brown". "J.T.S. Brown" is one of the most artistic and abstract forms in improv. We use the word “form” loosely as it’s not so much a form and more a philosophy of play. It was designed for a large cast (10-17 people), to involve as many players as possible at a time, to have a higher level of theatricality and polish than a typical improv show, and to encourage any move to be made at any time, with the idea that anything that happened was the perfect thing to happen. There isn’t a set structure and it’s infused with some short-form style moves.
