Humans make sense of the world through stories. We pick out relevant details, ascribe cause and effect relationships, delineate beginnings and endings, and impose meaning on our creations. Improvisers take advantage of these core intellectual capabilities to craft compelling narratives, collaboratively, under pressure and on the spot. This hands-on workshop explores the techniques theatrical improvisers use to engage each other and the audience while generating captivating tales. Starting with simple prompts and guidelines, we will build up to telling and acting out longer stories, with an eye toward intriguing and rewarding the audience.
