Improvised Knifefight Lessons - #2

Jamie as Hercules in London Improvathon 2012

Character, Character... CHARACTER!

Characters are the lifeblood of stories. Formats, plot lines, twists and turns all mean very little if we do not care about the characters who inhabit them.

In this three hour intensive, we will be discussing and exercising different means of creating and portraying distinct, dynamic and practical characters in improv scenes and formats.

Jamie "Knifefight" Cavanagh is an Canadian actor, writer, comedian, and professional improvisor and is a graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting program at the University of Alberta.

Jamie has performed in festivals and cities all over the world including: The London Improvathon [London UK], World Domination Theatresports Tournament [Atlanta GA], The Chcago Improv Festival [Chicago IL], Uprfront Theatre [Bellingham WA], The Saint Valentines Day Massacre [Vancouver BC], Toronto Improv Festival [Toronto ON], the CRUMBs [Winnipeg MB] and has taught as a guest instructor at London’s renowned London Academy of Musical and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA).
