Beer Shark Mice: Longform Intensive
Monday, September 3rd
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm at The Scottish Rite TheaterBuy Tickets
Using their signature format (formally known as the “slacker”), the members of Beer Shark Mice will give their take on the various aspects of longform improvisation: callbacks of characters and locations, time and space jumps, physical awareness of the space, walk-ons and justifications. The class will include a Q&A where students can state what they are most interested in and frustrated with in their work.
BEER SHARK MICE is a long form improvisational show that originated in Los Angeles. A forty to forty-five minute long show based on a suggestion of a location. The location is the starting point for an array of scenes where the players tag in to spin the scene in a new direction or wildly out of control to sometimes end up full circle where it all began. This legendary quintet from Chicago is a well respected group of men that learned the art of improvising from Improv Olympic, The Second City and Annoyance Theater.
