Improv for Actors: An Exploration

Description

Ever fear dropping your lines on stage? How can you know how your character might behave when everything that makes them who they are lives in the script?

In truth, a character may seem to live only within the script, but for the actor to make that character real, it's what you create beyond the words on the page and demands a foundation rooted in improv. Come explore what happens when the invisible work (that which is done offstage) will inform and heighten the visible work (that which lives on-stage). 

Join Stage Left's Resident Artist, Dahveed Bullis, in a four-week exploration through analysis, character development and, most importantly, the connection to your scene partner.

Dahveed is a professional actor and director with over 16 years of experience in the arts (stage, film, and music). He is an alumnus of Eastern Washington University’s Theatre Arts Program, who has held leade,rship positions with the Spokane Theatre Arts Council, West Valley High School, Spokane Falls Community College and the Company Ballet School. Dahveed has been twice nominated as an Irene Ryan Semi-Finalist (2014-15) and was awarded the Certificate of Merit for Direction (2016) and a Certificate of Merit for Music Composition and Arrangement (2019) by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Arts Festival. He has also been nominated for the Leadership Award with Spokane Arts as the Co-Founder of Spokane Playwrights Laboratory. He recently won Outstanding Dramatic Lead Performance and Outstanding Ensemble with Stage Left Theater's production of Pass Over at the Kaleidoscope 2023 Festival.
