This workshop focuses on the trap of improv arguments. They’re bad, right? Wait, no, conflict is good! Right? Uh oh. Whenever you’re fighting on stage, it feels good, like you’re getting things done. But when not properly balanced, it can just be a lot of clever yelling about imaginary objects. We’ll tackle how to use disagreements to our advantage by creating passionate, real and empathetic characters in environments that support the comedic engine of the scene.
