Strong Initiations and Listening
Steve and Ralph, who make up the queer duo Sad Trombone, have crafted their signature workshop for LGBTQIA performers to play and learn together in a safe, supporting environment.
In the first moments of a scene, improvisers are issuing a promise to the audience and themselves about the scene that's about to unfold. If you're an improviser who flames out in the middle of scenes, unsure of what to do next or where to take the scene -- if you find yourself throwing out new offers mid-scene, this workshop is for you. Everything you need to know about a scene is at the beginning; everything that follows is predicated by what's come before. Learn how to recognize everything the beginning of a scene has to offer so that you can mine the potential without having to restart a scene every twenty seconds in the hopes of finding something better, funnier, or newer.
**Please note: This workshop is only open to LGBTQIA improvisors**
