The Deconstruction Elective

Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

Aaron Walther

March 20, 2019 - May 8, 2019

PREREQUISITE: To register for this class you must have completed level 3 of our improv program or have experience with improv forms (Armando, Harold, etc.).

The Deconstruction is a format originally created by Del Close and The Family that incorporates a variety of play-styles to culminate in a deconstructed relationship of two key primary characters within the piece. Every part of the format serves to unpack the relationship. The set starts with slow/grounded scene work and picks up in pace from there, incorporating game-heavy scene work, straight-absurd, heavy device-work, and advanced ensemble play.

This 8 week class will focus wholly on the form. We will spend the first few weeks developing good habits for each section of The Deconstruction (see more info here on the breakdown) and the latter portion of the session running the form continuously from start to finish. In the end, students should expect to achieve reasonable proficiency in performing a very difficult format that, when done right, will result in a well-rounded set.

This class will meet weekly at the Fallout Theater (616 Lavaca St) on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm starting Wednesday, March 20th.

Tuition for this class is $225.

Payment plans are available on a case-by-case system. If you would like to inquire about a payment plan please email classes@fallouttheater.com.

This class is limited to 12 students, so reserve your spot now!

This elective counts as 2 credit hours towards the 4 hours needed to graduate from Fallout Theater.
