HEADS UP! We are not at Malt Cross for the next few weeks as they’ve got a hideous flooding problem to resolve! Instead, we’re upstairs at The Castle pub this week. Plus there is no drop-in next week (25 April) – we’ll be sorting out some social fun instead.
This week’s drop-in: Contrasting Views
Brought to you by Nick.
Contrast is a lovely thing that we randomly apply to our photos on Instagram, but in improv it can be even more satisfying. Presenting differences of opinion and direction in scenes provides pleasing textural contrast in a show, sometimes in wildly different characters, pace of scene or location. Sometimes seeing the consequences of activity in the previous scene, or the people who are affected by what’s happened deepen and emphasise what has come before. This week we’re going to play some short form games which have contrast baked right into them, and look at how we can intentionally provide counterpoints and contrast in more free-flowing scenes.
