This week’s jam: It Takes Two
This week’s improv jam is brought to you by: Neil
Character building is important during scenes. This begins by naming your scene partner. When you do this you give your scene partner inspiration as to what to do during the scene. After all, Jane would do something completely different to what Dorothy would do.
We will begin the night with some exercises that practice “Yes and…” as well as naming each other and establishing what people are doing early on in their scenes. The sooner names are established – not only do the performers have an easier time developing their characters – you will find the audience will know more about what is going on as well.
Hopefully this will develop techniques you can call on in future scenes where you will be able to begin character creation as quickly as possible.
