Shifting gears

Improvisational theater comes in many forms, a lot of troupes specialize on a particular style. Some will talk a lot during there scenes, others focus on silence in scenes, some groups love making small talk and others focus purely on the relationships between the characters. What would happen if you would change the style you are playing in in the middle of the scene? That is what you are going to discover in this workshop.

The goal is to shift styles and speeds during the scene. You will create dynamic scenes that can make small talk all of a sudden very important for the characters. switch from talking heads into beautiful silent moments. I will hand you an easy to remember system with which you can consciously switch back and forth between styles for the good of the scene.
