Christian Capozzoli has toured and traveled bringing his “Aerodynamics of Yes” approach to improv festivals, schools and corporations the world over, including the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Magnet Theater, Second City, IO, and The Annoyance. He holds a Masters in Literature and Education from Harvard University, and is currently prototyping an improv curriculum for New York City high schools.
I’ve been ridiculously lucky to work with some of the funniest most gifted and hilarious performers in the world; groups from Europe, South America, Asia, Australia, and in any city in North America that would have me. I am honored to have worked with these groups and to have had their trust in guiding, coaching, and directing them to celebrate each other and their work to make some of the freshest live theater out there. *Contact me now for a coaching session.
“Christian is unbelievable. He’s maybe the best improv teacher I’ve ever had. Plus what he teaches is helpful for writing sketch, if you happen to want to write sketch.”
“Christian dares you to be amazing, then does whatever he can to help you find it in yourself and each other.”
“Christian thinks faster than the Flash’s metabolism. He uses memorable metaphors when discussing the art form so that complex theories are very accessible.”
“Christian’s work is inspiring. His emphasis on the group mind, rather than the individual’s, breeds positive, high energy, physical improvisation. I have seldom felt so lucky to have worked with an instructor.”
“Christian’s work with matching energies was a revelation, and his ability to explain his concepts clearly AND present exercises that get them into your body is exceptional. This is some of the easiest and most releasing improv I’ve ever done.”
