KCIF 2018 | Relationship is a Game w/ Dylan Rohde
August 19 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Skill Level: All Levels
Many improvisers are told they have to either focus on Relationship or Game as if there is no middle ground. (My favorite lp edit: The most engaging) performers are able to play both AT THE SAME TIME. In this workshop, we’ll focus on finding a realistic relationship that continues to get laughs every time its dynamic is tested. The Odd Couple is a perfect example where every time they are at odds, we laugh.
Dylan is the founder of The Backline (Improv School/Comedy Theatre in Omaha), Omaha Improv Festival, and Omaha Comedy Week. Trained and performed for almost 4 years at UCB-LA, trained and performed for 2 years at iO West, and was a member of the early LA Indie scene.
Combining UCB and iO has created a style that is both very focused on “Game” but also a necessity for finding “Relationship.” The goal is for a realistic and relatable scene, but also finding patterns to have fun with and get the audience laughing. He teaches the two most important qualities in improv are trust and listening.
Dylan has taught and performed at the Tampa Bay Improv Festival, Crossroads Comedy Festival (Indianapolis,) Third Coast Improv Festival (Nashville,) Improvention International Improv Festival (Australia,) HUGE Theatre (Minneapolis,) Voodoo Theatre (guest for Governor Jack twice) (Denver,) Kick Theatre (Kansas City,) The Improv Shop (St. Louis,) Last Laugh (Des Moines,) West Dakota Players (Rapid City,) Camping USA (Big Bear, CA.) He has performed in the Del Close Marathon, Chicago Improv Festival, LA Improv Festival, Second City-LA 24-hour Improv Festival.
