Let’s get more love going on in our stories! By being able to be more physical, we engage both ourselves and our audience on a visceral level. How do we become comfortable with being close to each other, and being physical with each other when appropriate to the scene or story? We’ll look at some guidelines and techniques for engaging each other onstage.
Tim has improvised since 1988 with many San Francisco-based groups, including BATS Improv, Rafe Chase’s groundbreaking longform troupe Improv Theatre, the renowned True Fiction Magazine, and the acclaimed troupe 3 For All. In 2009, he founded a new improv group, the Improv Playhouse of San Francisco.
He has appeared in numerous plays in the San Francisco Bay Area and received critical acclaim for his leading roles in the improvised feature filmsSuckerfish and Security. With Stephen Kearin, Tim co-wrote and originated the role of Dirk Manly in An Evening with Dirk & Blaine.
Tim has performed (and taught) improvisation at the American Conservatory Theatre, BATS Improv, Stanford University, and many other venues nationally (Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Austin, Louisville, Atlanta) and internationally (Amsterdam, Beirut, Helsinki, Leuven, London, Paris, Stockholm).
