The Deconstruction

  • 414 East 9th Street Tucson, AZ, 85705 United States (map)

Instructor: Brian James O'Connell
Saturday, November 10th 2pm-4:30pm

The single most important improv format ever created. It contains every possible permutation of scene approach and thematic development. An understanding of The Deconstruction is essential for the artistic, intellectual and technical development of an improviser. Quite simply, an improviser's understanding of the "work" will never be the same after being exposed to it. Learning these skills will radically improve your understanding of improvisation and raise your level of play. If the Harold is algebra, The Deconstruction is calculus. Once you learn calculus, everything else seems like simple math.
