Presented by Ed Reggi

Viola Spolin’s writings and philosophy influenced not only American theatre, television, and film, but the American theatre classroom. But few students and teachers understand how to decode her theatre games. In this workshop, participants will decode the key principles behind Spolin’s theatre games and the critical role the side-coach plays in teaching theatre. Experiencing Yes...And, Give and Take, Emerging Who, and other Spolin theatre games, participants become better acquainted with the most overlooked parts of Spolin’s pedagogy. This workshop is geared for the advanced improv student and/or educator who wants to take a deeper dive into Viola Spolin's theater games.
