Dramatic Improv: Living the Truth of the Scene
“Does improv have to be comedy?” No. Not at all.
Listen – React – Respond in an honest and open way through emotional connections. Explore believable people and relationships through true emotions, feelings and attitudes. React to your scene partners, moment to moment, and experience different results when you improvise.
We’ll explore scenes where laughs aren’t the goal but believability and tension are. Resist the urge to be funny and go for more.
Open to all students.
