I am learning about improvisation.
There are an infinite number of ways to say ‘no’. Art, theatre and mainly improvisational theatre must exist entirely without ‘no’. Take suggestions, take leads of others at all times, at all costs. We are taught to think about the consequences and to worry, fear and dread change. We set out our plans and we don’t want others to get in the way.
So yes, perhaps the route wont be what you expected, but isn’t what you forge out of each unpredicted moment even more intriguing?
I am learning new workshop skills out here in Brooklyn, New York with http://irondale.org/ and the Ringmaster will be most grateful for the doors that are opening to her.
