Week 1 Copy

Status

  • We worked on playing low/high status characters.
  • What does it mean to be high status? What about low status?
    • The juxtaposition between the high and low status characters is a classic comedic trope.
  • Exercise: walking around the room and such
    • We used this exercise to practice playing low and high status characters. Remember to listen and respond!
  • Remember, it’s never too late to give up your idea. If you find that you and your scene partner are fighting over the high status role, try finding a way to be the low status character in that scene.

Premise Based Improv

  • We practiced using monologues to inform improv scenes
  • When initiating a scene, don’t be afraid to come right out and drop your premise at the beginning of the scene.
  • We practiced giving monologues and then running with the first unusual thing.
