Foundation 2 focuses on refining your improv knowledge and skill set, reinforcing the concepts you learned in Foundation 1 through games, play, and exercises.
This course covers all of the content of the 6-week Foundation 2 class over three days.
While the emphasis is still on fun, course content also explores more conceptual and technical information and helps you build the skills you need to perform in front of an audience.
Students in Foundation 2 are recommended to read IMPRO by Keith Johnstone. Johnstone invented Theatresports, one of the core improv formats we play at BATS. The book is available from a variety of retail outlets, including Amazon.
At the conclusion of the weekend, there will be an optional Micetro performance on Sunday night, right after the last class. It is not mandatory to perform! Both Foundation 1 and Foundation 2 intensives will be invited to participate.
