MORE ABOUT EAST MEETS WEST...
When ESR Board Member Cortney Roles moved to LA, it would have been easy for her to wish us well and break ties... But that's not what she did. Instead, she used her fresh start to help us connect with artists more than 2330 miles away. The participants of East Meets West workshops will receive knowledge and experience from various amazing artists on subjects like Improv, Playwrighting, How to Market Yourself as an Artist Online, and more!

Currently, she is in pre-production for a feature film she is writing and is in rehearsals as Cathy in a production of The Last Five Years.
IMPROV with Vikram Bhoyrul
Improv is the art of listening and reacting honestly to your scene partner, being comfortable with messing up and having a great time. The goal of this course is to introduce you to how improvisers create a character (similar to the way they teach at The Groundlings) and teach you how to put a scene together (similar to the style of Upright Citizens Brigade). This class features activities and warm ups that work on both of these philosophies. We will focus on reinforcing the fundamentals of improv to the point where the student will feel very comfortable performing a full show in front of a live audience.
Vikram Bhoyrul is an actor and is the director of Theatre 68's weekly meetups known as “Gym” where 20-30 actors perform scenes, learn a variety of acting related techniques from incredible people in the industry and produce many exciting plays. He has had a passion for improv ever since he was a teenager obsessed with sketch comedy. Vikram fell in love with the craft of Improv at Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles and continued to study improv at Groundlings to familiarize himself with their philosophy too. He performed on several indie teams for a few years including most notably “My Brother’s Number”. Vikram uses improv when he is doing theater, directing on camera work and even when he is writing. He has seen and understands just how valuable trusting your own instincts, listening to your scene partner and being really silly can be and wants to share this with as many up and coming actors as possible.
