We get it, you’re cool. But being cool on stage makes finding your character’s point of view and meaning in your scenes more difficult than it has to be. Improvisers who are more reactive help themselves and their ensemble understand their scenes and introduce information that can clearly and easily be used later in a show. In this workshop we’ll focus on not waiting to find something to react to, recognizing when gifts are given and accepting them with enthusiasm. We’ll address how often we ignore, don’t notice or flatly deny a gift from our scene partner(s) and instead seek out every opportunity to make things more meaningful in a variety of ways.
