Being able to take the stand out parts of an interview or monologue and create improvised scenes that explore and heighten the subject matter, no matter how serious, is definitely a skill. Astronomy Club strongly utilizes this technique in their weekly show, and member Ray Cordova is here to take students through a crash course in their approach. In this workshop, students will use concepts of longform improv – agreement, point of view, framing behavior, listening and support – to craft scenes that enrich a funny, interesting or poignant idea, rather than just comment on it. For improvisers with 1+ years experience.
Ray is an actor and writer born and raised in Queens, NY. In addition to being on one of the dopest sketch teams around, Astronomy Club, Ray can be seen performing all over NYC using his comedy to spread joy and wokeness in a world that needs it now more than ever.
