SUMMER 2   

Improvisation for Entrepreneurs THTR 1125 – CRN 60877

Introduces students to theatre improvisation principles, games, and exercises. Offers a playful and demanding environment for students to recognize and develop their “soft skills” and to learn to read and react to unexpected situations with confidence and agility. This is an experiential studio course—sessions are comprised of a series of cumulative group and individual exercises to explore and practice spatial awareness, physical presence, mental agility, creativity, adaptability, risk taking, intuition, and teamwork. Using the required reading as a starting point, a final self-reflection paper gives students an opportunity to articulate their discoveries, their challenges, and their strategies. Prereq. Not open to theater majors. Taught by Jesse Hinson.
