HAROLD Workshop – The King Ten Way
Saturday Oct. 12th – 1:00 to 3:00 pm , $30

Harold, invented by the late Del Close, is a form that follows character  and theme in a long form improvised setting. In this workshop, improvisers will get a firm grasp on how to develop group mind in the opening, pull  information and infuse it into the form. You will learn the basic structure of  the form but learn how to break through structure and follow themes and  ideas. You will also learn the game slots of a Harold and how to use them to build even more information and solidify theme.
