Improvisation: Grounded In Reality

A powerful, memorable and engaging improvised scene has nothing to do with being clever —­it has everything to do with patience and instinct. What all great improvisational actors have in common is the ability to ground themselves in the reality of the current moment. This skill is developed by spending dedicated time to slow down and take in everything that is said and done in each and every moment. In this workshop, we will approach improvised scenes from a slow and steady pace that lets “the who, what, when, where, and why” nfold in real time for the actors and the audience. This approach to scenes creates a memorable ride that is as fulfilling to play as it is to watch.
