improv incubator: 3hrs of scenework [w. philly]

we meet every sunday night, right off Drexel campus. 

check our FB for details

Incubator is weekly improv gymnasium, facilitated by Rick Horner and Milkshake for improvisors of all experience levels to work out and keep their skills sharp.
incubator is free, but we appreciate your donations to keep our doors open sunday after sunday. our mission is to make one another look like great performers.


________________ 

For novices, give your attention to hearing the exercises explained, and your fullest attention to your scene partner. And relax, it's just practice.

For intermediates, come with a challenge for yourself to maintain throughout the proceedings, such as "all my characters will be fully engaged in some meticulous chore while talking to other characters", or "all my characters will speak through the knowledge that they're standing over the shallow graves of their victims".

For performing improvisors, shoot us some questions about what to expect, or some suggestions of exercises you'd like to do. Get it to us well in advance and you could be dictating the whole evening.

    What a great group! I got out of my comfort zone and was able to access my creative side, with a cool gang who was supportive, had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun!

    I cannot attend this Sunday night. Will this be an ongoing group that we can attend when we can, or how will it work, please? Can you please email me with details? Thanks!

      Hi Adrienne! Thanks for getting involved in this Meetup - yes it happens regularly. Every Sunday night, good people get together and build something with no audience and only for the benefit of themselves and each other. We have a lot of fun and enjoy a lot of laughs. We usually start at about 7 and ends at about 10 but people tend to come late and leave early. If you were thinking that you wouldn't be able to attend tonight because you can't make 7 o'clock please feel free to come when you are able to! Wear comfortable clothes and have an open mind and you'll probably enjoy yourself!

    Do I need any experience (um, with improv) to attend? Can I show if I haven't RSVPd?

      Hi Andrea! No, you don't need any um improv experience to have great time at the Incubator - you'll want to wear clothes you can move in, and being willing to have fun is nice tho. Yes, you can come without RSVP, you will need to buzz the door to get into the CEC. So know that. Its cold.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
