2011 SFIF Workshops
Instructor: Jonathan Pitts
Listen up! One major skill all schools of improvisation have in common is the need for listening. True listening is a whole body activity requiring constant engagement in the improviser’s body, brain, heart, and spirit of play. This workshop uses two-person scenes to help players listen to both each other and themselves. You should hear what you’re missing.
Jonathan Pitts has been involved with improvisational theater for over 30 years and is the Co-Founder of the prestigious Chicago Improv Festival. He’s also the creator/director of the improvisation theatre forms: The Oracle; The Silent Movie; and Storybox Theatre; as well as The Marty, a teaching exercise that he utilizes in his Whole Body Listening workshop.
