PRESENCE • PLAY • GAME • COMMITMENT • AUDIENCE
An introduction to the basic principles of The Idiot. The foundation of The Idiot begins with the establishment of a relationship with the audience. Without an audience The Idiot does not exist. Performers in The Idiot Workshop learn to be present and playful allowing them to improvise organically without having to follow improv rules or formulas. Range is developed through strong commitment to choice, character, self and partner. Performers are encouraged to play from their unique comedy core and to discover the potential for game in every moment. Performers are introduced to physical performance engaging the entire body.
