Are You Too Nice Of An Improvisor?

WORKSHOP AVAILABLE TO ALL WRITERS AND PERFORMERS, "STUDENT FEE" ONLY AVAILABLE FOR REGISTERED NC COMEDY ARTS FESTIVAL PERFORMERS (WHO HAVE ELECTED TO REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP PACKAGE).

Have you ever started a scene with a strong character then immediately abandoned it for the sake of “yes anding” your scene partner? You think you're helping the scene by doing what you think your scene partner wants you to do, but that's not always what the scene needs you to do. Sometimes as improvisors we forget how to play a scene. We end up having a boring scene instead of one rich with perspective.

Are You Too Nice does not advocate arguing but instead allows the improvisor to delve deep into how their character might “yes and” as opposed to how they personally would in real life. These valuable exercises will teach you to feel at ease and in control of who you are in each and every scene you do.

DSI proudly offers this workshop in conjunction with the year-long NC Comedy Arts MASTER CLASS SERIES. THESE WORKSHOPS ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL LOCAL AND VISITING IMPROVISERS AND IMPROV STUDENTS.
