Pittsburgh: Iguanatron presents Wheel of Bits

Comedy duo Iguanatron (long-time friends and performers Brian Gray and Greg Gillotti) present Wheel of Bits: the final performance in their first-ever mini east coast tour. The show features an Iguanatron museum, the return of fan favorite The Brian Gray Show, live music, and the premiere of Wheel of Bits, a fast-paced series of audience selected short written segments such as Dolly MonologuesPhone Calls from the Other Side and Stack of Sandwiches

The show also features an improv set honed by a week on the road. Iguanatron is bold and theatrical, representing what Brian and Greg love most about improvisation: entering a blank stage and discovering stories together.

Philadelphia: YETI and Not So Nice Guy Workshops

Greg and Brian are both teaching workshops in the afternoon. Both 3 hours, limited to 14 students. Sign up at the Philly Improv Theater.

YETI: Get to Meaty Scenes Quickly with Brian Gray
YETI (Yourself Eyes Tension Information) is a method of entering stage completely blank–no ideas or preconceptions–and learning to trust your instincts and find meaning in every look and move your scene partner makes in order to discover a fascinating scene quickly and naturally. These scenes tend to be easier to play and hilarious even before players begin speaking. If this seems like an unattainable nirvana, this workshop will present a repeatable process and build it one layer at a time. Borrowing ideas from ViewPoints, Meisner technique, The New Movement, and my nearly 15 years of experience, YETI will appeal to beginners and experts who want a more human­centric, theatrical experience on stage.

Not So Nice Guy with Greg Gillotti

Less Mr. Nice Guy is a clinic on embracing working together with your partner to make things worse without turning scenes overly negative or treading into arguments. We will focus on following patterns, getting over being the bad guy, and embracing the dark side of your characters in a productive, fun way.

Intro to Performance Improv: Decide and Trust

Improvisation is a special art in which no one–neither the performers nor the audience–knows what is coming next. Learning improv is learning to be present, to listen fully to your partner, and to react with honest emotion. These are useful and rewarding skills for anyone, whether you’re an actor or just want to be more comfortable public speaking. This workshop will cover techniques for improvising scenes collaboratively by making confident decisions in-the-moment and allowing intuition to guide your choices. No experience is required.

Workshop is made free by arrangement with University of Pittsburgh Student Government, though registration is required and space is very limited. Once filed, students registering will be added to a wait list.

Registration information coming soon.

Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh

In special arrangement with The Performance Collaborative at the University of Pittsburgh, Iguantron is kicking off our tour with a performance in the beautiful Studio Theater* at the Cathedral of Learning that is being made FREE to Pitt students.

 Iguanatron joins forces with their friends Player One and Change Machine for an evening of improvised adventure.

Player One is Arcade Comedy Theater’s premier comedy troupe, comprised of experienced improvisers from both the Second City Touring Company and iO West, as well local veterans. Its members are also Arcade founders, coaches, teachers, and staff.

Change Machine is a house team at Arcade Comedy Theater that has been developing their unique style and undeniable chemistry together for over two years. Their show begins with a small, honest moment and takes you through a labyrinth of thematically connected twists and turns in which anything can happen.

* Once at the Cathedral of Learning, head in any entrance, go down to the basement level (one below G) and the whole floor is one big square so as long as you keep walking in the basement you will hit the theatre. Note: depending where you enter, you may enter from the outside at G or at 1 (the floor above G) because the Cathedral is built on a hill.
