#HIF2020 Workshop: (Improv) Gods Don’t Play Dice with Chris George

Sea Tea Improv Studios
11 Asylum St, Suite 402, Hartford, CT

(Improv) Gods Don't Play Dice

Instructor: Chris George

Successful improv shows are not built on a random series of events - great improvisers make consistent, intentional, and conscious choices that drive their shows forward. Improv is not only about taking risks, it's about making every risk a calculated one. Stop hoping that your shows will be successful, and instead start noting the power of choices that you make to put yourself in the driver's seat of success, and know which choices work for the show you're doing.

Participants in this workshop will start analyzing the affect and effect of their choices on the outcome of the show and understand a greater knowledge of what they individually can do to become the masters of their own personal universes.
