Theatre Lawrence has scheduled a three-part improv workshop with guest artist Uta M. Walter, a Berlin, Germany, artist who also trains regularly with San Francisco’s Bay Area Theatresports as well as with Keith Johnstone, Stephen Sim and Lee White.
Sessions will be from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12 and Sept. 19 at Theatre Lawrence, 1501 N.H. The cost is $60, with proceeds benefitting the Theatre Lawrence building fund. Space is limited, and advance enrollment is required. Call Theatre Lawrence at 785-843-7469.
Workshops will focus on the basics of creating characters on the spot, co-creating scene starters and the spontaneity and teamwork that makes for good improv (and life).
Walter started her improv training in 2000 as an escape from graduate school, and ended up not escaping but writing her dissertation about it. She returned to her native Germany in 2006, where she is a member of two Berlin improv groups.
