INNPROVATION: IMPROV FOR INNOVATION

Improvisation, or the art of making things up, is increasingly recognized as a powerful tool to encourage innovation, cultivate creative thinking and respond positively to change. Two simple words—yes, and—form the building blocks of improvisation. Really understanding the transformative power of those two words is like suddenly being given super-powers. Through a series of fun interactive games and exercises you will discover improvisation, its applications and the benefits of an improvisational mindset, and you will explore how you can apply those skills to real life scenarios. Start-ups, social entrepreneurs, creators and makers are encouraged to attend.

Monday, March 24

Yes Means Yes: Improv(e) Your Agreement

Agreement is the engine that moves, games, characters and scenes forward. Yes, and—those two little words, so tiny and so very powerful, yet so challenging to truly master. Agreement should be simple but it often isn’t. Whether it is the subtle yesbut, the agree-deny (yes, and then I’m going to do what I want) or the straight out denial, negative habits sometimes creep into our work. Sure, they can result in short term laughs but these laughs can stop a scene or a game in its tracks. Learning to really say, “Yes! And!” and to know what it really means to say it, then to play it, will take your work to a whole new level.

In this intensive, two-part workshop, through games, scenes and exercises, we will unpack these basic building blocks of improvisation so that you can use them to build, more dynamic games, craft more compelling scenes, create more authentic characters, and respond honestly and emotionally to the reality before you, with often hilarious results. On Sunday night you will be able demonstrate your mad skills in a live show on Sunday night at Charlie’s. Your yesands will rock the house.

Participants should have taken basic improvisation classes.

Registration is required and space is limited.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, March 29 and Sunday, March 30 from 1-4 PM.

Participants are expected to be able to attend both workshops.

Please wear comfortable clothing.
