Teacher: Evan Schweitzer
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY on a diet rich in Sci-Fi, Musical Theatre and Jewish Guilt, Evan Schweitzer has wandered the Earth searching for meaning and hoping that the truth is out there (cue the theme song). A professional actor since he was a teenager, he has performed with TheaterworksUSA, New England Shakespeare Company, Spontaneous Shakespeare Company, Trap Door International (an extension of Trap Door Theatre in Chicago), Gorilla Rep and more. Evan received his degree in Theatre Arts from Rutgers University and has studied at Upright Citizens Brigade and the Barrow Group in NYC, and St. Mary’s University in London. Since moving to Barcelona in 2012, he has been performing and teaching with Barcelona Improv Group (B.I.G.). Additionally, he has taught improv at the Rutgers Summer Acting Conservatory. Evan teaches various levels of improv including our Level 2 Shortform Games Intensive and Level 1 Intro to Longform. He has also developed workshops to help improvisers raise their awareness onstage using techniques from the acting world.
