DIF Workshop with Chad Damiani
SAVE THE SHOW!: A GUIDE TO CREATING EPIC SETS
Think about the role of a clown in the circus. They’re sent out after sword swallowers and fire
breathers. Trapeze artists and tightrope walkers. Skilled performers who risk their lives for the
crowd’s amusement. In order to compete with that kind of spectacle, the clown must find a way
to risk just as much. So they do the one thing that scares people more than death. They fail.
Utterly, deeply and completely. The clown thrives when they’re in trouble, because then they
must do the impossible to save the show.
This workshop will show you how clown principles can electrify your improv.
Truthfulness. Vulnerability. Total commitment. You’ll explore how to create more dynamic shows
by embracing failure. Experiment with techniques that help you bypass judgment and surprise
yourself with absurd choices. And you’ll learn how to harness the audience’s energy to drive
your scenes, making them completely invested in the outcome.
