Take away the pressure of having to think up the entire premise of your scene before you initiate. That’s not improv, that’s invention. Improv is about cooperation and discovery. Abandon the “flame thrower method” of starting a scene. Learn the “two-sticks rubbing together method” to light the fire of character and scenic discovery. Walk the plotless path. ”We don’t serve plot, plot serves us.” Students learn to focus on “Who” and “Where” so “What” simply appears. Meditations and group mind exercises will help you realize that everything that happens on stage is an obstacle or an opportunity, the choice is yours.
