A number of factors can make an improv scene great: saying “yes, and,” exploring emotions, and listening and reacting to your scene partner honestly. In this class, students will explore those techniques in one of improv’s purest forms – the two-person scene. A player’s job in a scene is to make their partner look good, and the most interesting scenes are often about the relationship between the pair. Students will do warm-up exercises, play theatre games, and perform two-person scenes that explore the connections that exist between characters, building trust in their teammate and their own confidence along the way. Bring an improv partner or a friend; meet a new teammate; or in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, bring your date, to this duo-themed workshop. Not only is improv fun, but it is also a tool for life: it can make you a better listener, public speaker, and creative thinker.
