on Monday nights I’ve been taking an improv class with one of the actors in our local improv troupe, the Have Nots. I must say it’s been really fun so far, and very difficult. We’ve been taught, so far, to begin with input, then to visualize what you see based on this input (as fast as you can). Then to focus your visualization and react upon that focus. Improv is a lot less about comedy than it is about scene-building, relationship building, and generally working together to further a scene from nothingness into something valuable.
