Improv Fundamentals: Environment
From a musty local dive bar filled with regulars to a gleaming space station orbiting an alien world, improvisers must be ready to create the “where” of their scenes from thin air.

In this Fundamentals course, students will focus on the skills and techniques necessary to transform a stage and a couple of chairs into any environment their scene needs. From studies in object work, finding inspiration in your space work, to becoming the scenery yourself, this class will teach you how to bring your scenes to life.

The Mopco Improv Fundamentals Wheel
Each of the four classes in the Fundamentals Wheel offers work on the core tenets of improv through a unique lens. The four classes are: Environment, Character, Narrative, and Scene. These reflect basic skill areas that good improv demands, all using the same core principles. You can jump into the wheel at any point and you don't need to take them in any particular order.

Each Improv Fundamentals and Musical Improv 6-Week course each has a unique performance element that showcases the skills you focused on during the class. You'll be able to show off to your friends and family everything you've learned. The performance is not mandatory but we bet you'll want to take part. Participation is dependant on consistent attendance.
