This week’s jam: Who? What? Where?
The jam is brought to you by Parky.
If you’ve ever seen a good improv scene, the chances are you enjoyed it because it had interesting characters in a nice relationship. Finding out who people are in a scene, what they are doing and why they are doing it is generally much more interesting than watching a couple of people just doing a thing.
Watching two people fumble at trying to put a tent up is less interesting than the relationship between them, how they ended up in this position and how this latest debacle fits into their lives. “You always do this when….” is more intriguing than “Well, we could try this. No, let’s try this. Actually, let’s do this.”
So, this week we’ll concentrate on establishing some basic information early. Who are you both? Where are you? And what are you doing? By doing this, not only will you and your scene partner have a firm foundation for the rest of your scene, but you will give each other some lovely gifts. And, the audience are likely to be more invested in what unravels.
