Character arc in a long form

LEVEL 03 | More than 5 years experienced

English translated to Italian

This workshop is for improvisers who find themselves playing the main character (or any character) in a long form, and are unsure of how to develop the character’s arc and move the story forward.

When improvising longforms, we often focus much of our attention on the plot, trying to create the story from without. Another way of telling a story is from within, by following character arcs: What is happening to the character? What are their choices, actions, highs and lows, strengths and flaws? Stories told from the perspective of the character arc have a strong internal driving force and shine a light on human nature, in all its splendor and imperfection. For us as improvisers, this is both a great challenge and an exhilarating ride.

In this workshop, we will learn how to create compelling character arcs that will move and surprise our audiences, empower us to dare into stronger and more interesting characters and choices and leave everyone asking for more.
