Learn the secret weapon of improv - Object Work.

A picture is worth 1,000 words so why don’t you want 1,000 words worth of information streaming into your scenes every time you deal with the objects and spaces around you. Rolling visualisation brings you fully into the skin of your character, in present tense engagement with the world around you. Object work makes call backs easier, engages your audience, kills “talking heads” scenes, and creates opportunities for every other player on stage.
