Tilt improv festival presents:

Improv workshop by Amy Shostak
"Fear of the Unknown"
Exploring the idea of a “chorus”, shared first person narration, and scene painting, this workshop combines storytelling techniques to add another dimension to our scene work. Led by Amy Shostak from Rapid Fire Theatre (Canada), this workshop will end in the creation of an improvised Gothic horror story in the style of 19th century American writer Edgar Allan Poe, based on real life fears from the audience.
Experience level: intermediate. Participants should have a solid grasp on improvised scene work. This workshop will be in English.
NB! The participants of the workshop will have a chance to present the format in a show the same evening!

Amy is an improviser and creator living in Vancouver, Canada. She started improvising with Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre in 2002, and she served as the company's Artistic Director for six years. In 2015, she was honoured with an Excellence in Artistic Direction Award from the Mayor’s Celebration for the Arts in Edmonton. Amy now spends her time in Vancouver, teaching improvisation with Blind Tiger Comedy, and is the festival director of The Vancouver International Improv Festival. She is passionate about creating safe and healthy improv communities and has organized several dialogues and panels while in Vancouver.
