Are you tired of watching different groups play the same ten short-form games? Let’s break the mold together! Instead of trying to fit into the box of “classic short form,” we’re gonna crack it wide open and create our own games. We’ll identify the types of forms you enjoy, discuss your unique interests, and combine the things you like to create new games. You’ll get to lead your own game which highlights your natural strengths and learn some new ones from your troupe mates for the day. Bring your whole self and be ready to get weird!
When: Sunday, August 23 12:00 – 2:00pm EST
Where: Online via Zoom

Stephanie Rae has been studying traditional and musical improv for the last eleven years. After falling in love with the form at the Washington Improv Theater, she moved to Miami, founded Negative Four Months, and created hit shows including Law & Disorder and The Laughter Games. She later joined the Society Circus Players, performing monthly in Coral Gables and in festivals including Miami Improv, Palm Beach, Countdown, and UCB’s Del Close Marathon – in which she conceived and directed a Boyz II Men themed improv show. Stephanie has taught weekly classes for Red Carpet Kids and workshops for teens and adults from around the world. These days, she directs the Black Improv Alliance, with whom she’s created original games including My Cuzzin Name, Superfight Cypher, and Red Flag Dating Profiles, amongst others. She also has a law degree – but mostly uses it to win arguments online.
