Hot Mess (Jacque Arend, Liz Hutchman and Stacey Reed Hanlon) presents:
HOT HAROLD (November 27th – December 22nd)
This winter intensive is a combination of 15 total classes focusing on longform skills and applying them to the Harold format. Students can enjoy our Skills Classes (10 in total) and our five session Form Class, culminating in a showcase. Each skill contributes to your toolbox and can be taken as individual classes where spots remain. The Form Class will solely focus on the understanding and execution of the Harold and how the skills contribute to all longform performance. The design of the intensive schedules Skills Classes to focus on what is needed by each Form Class so time is spent solely on application within the structure. Hot Mess believes that this structure is of value to understand & create incredible longform performances, while also recognizing that we do not need to stick to norms, traditions or “rules”. We aim to teach this course with the hopes that all of us improvising today can evolve the artform to our voices, instincts, imaginations and our brilliant innovative minds.
Skills class #3 – Group Games
Students will focus directly on group games and how agreement is the main ingredient to successful ensemble work. We will practice finding pattern and establishing the rules together in a simple and effective way. We’ll explore the weird organic nature of ensemble work while also introducing some basic structure from common games in the longform arsenal.
