    • Note: partial tuition grants available and all are encouraged to apply here

    • Course description: This ongoing Impro Lab offers improvisers (Level II and up) an opportunity to dive into impro methods that develop the imagination, range of expression, agility, willingness to take risks and harness the power of uncertainty, and skills for creating compelling performances (scripted and unscripted), stories, and unique characters. This workshop is not only for improvisers but for artists and makers (actors, directors, writers, educators, entrepreneurs, etc.) who are interested in bringing an improvisation mindset, more spontaneity, and play into their creative, collaborative processes.

  • Going Off-Script in London: Improvisation for Leading, Collaborating, and Creating (June 22 - July 6, 2022). This 2-week applied improvisation travel course is offered through Portland State University and can be taken for 4 undergraduate or graduate credit hours; however, it is also open to folks beyond PSU and, given what is included in the package, is very reasonably priced. More information here.

    • Course description: In this 2-week travel course, using London and its vibrant impro community as our laboratory, students will explore the theoretical principles and related practices of improvisational theatre to  enhance the skills needed to go “off-script” adeptly using an improvisation mindset.

  • Theresa is directing QUALITY OF DEATH, a new play by Ruth Jenkins, for the 2022 Fertile Ground Festival. More info here
