Space Object Work
Remember when improv involved being in a real physical space with other people?
We’ll practice doing scenes that aren’t two people chit-chatting in a blank void by creating and populating a specific imagined environment. Object work is a foundational technique for the beginning improviser, grounding you in the scene and creating interest for the audience without even opening your mouth. It’s also a skill that takes an improviser to the next level, enabling richer, more specific, and more original scenework.
Space object work does not involve leaving our atmosphere and is suitable for improvisers of all levels!
