A strong understanding and ability to apply the foundation skills of improvisation is essential for all improvisers. All too frequently, this step is rushed through. Quick and over simplistic definitions such as 'never say no' and 'always say yes' are taught which leave a huge gap in the players' understanding and development. Inexperienced teachers will teach games workshops where they run game after game but there is no focus on understanding the skills and terminology such as Blocking, Acceptance, Offer, Wimping, Cancelling, Hedging, Sidetracking, Conflict and more.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and experienced improvisors alike- we can never overdo the basics!
