BAD MANNERS, BETTER SCENES: Helping the Scene by Helping Yourself
How often do you find yourself lost onstage as you search to find out what the scene you are in is about and what your scene partner is doing? Most often our initial instruction in improvisation teaches us to be selfless in order to best serve the scene. However, more often than not, this leads to ambiguity and lack of decision making in our scene work. In this workshop we will learn that the most important thing we can do to help our scene partners, and the scene itself, is to take care of ourselves first. By employing these themes into our work, we will find more consistent success, and more importantly, we will experience a higher level of freedom, allowing us more satisfaction in our work.
