PVCC to Host In-Form: Shapes of Contemporary Improvisation Workshop Session

Charlottesville, Va. – March 2, 2020 – Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) will host a session of its “In-form: Shapes of Contemporary Improvisation” workshop series with veteran improv practitioner Michelle James on Friday, March 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. The workshop will take place in the Maxwell Black Box Theatre, located in the V. Earl Dickinson Building. Admission is free and no experience is required to take part.

James will lead a session called “Improv for the Spirit,” a series of practices geared toward having fun while inspiring creativity, spontaneity and connection with others. The work aims to help participants become more comfortable in the “unplanned flow” of improv.

James has been a student of improv for 20 years, performing with Precipice Improv in and around Washington D.C. and more recently with Virginia Playback Theatre. She leads Applied Improvisation workshops and programs through her company, The Center for Creative Emergence.

PVCC’s “In-form” workshops host a rotating roster of professional theatre artists in explorations of various forms of contemporary improvisation. James leads the final session in the series for the 2019-20 Fine Arts and Performance season.
