Brian James O'Connell's
"The Deconstruction" Improv Workshop

Saturday, February 10th, 2024

Instructor: Brian O'Connell

Class Fee: $85

Time: 1-4pm

Location: The Center Yoga Studio, 672 Higuera Street, SLO

Workshop Description: Improv expert Brian O'Connell will introduce you to The Deconstruction! Created by The Family, iO's legendary troupe, and under the direction of Del Close himself, The Deconstruction is the single most important long form ever created, as it contains every single possible permutation of scene approach and thematic development. An understanding of the deconstruction is essential for the artistic intellectual and technical development of an Improvisor. Quite simply, an improviser's understanding of the work will never be the same after being exposed to "Decon". Whether you perform short form improvised Shakespeare or are merely a writer looking to improve your understanding of character and structure learning these skills will radically improve your understanding of improvisation and raise your level of play!
