Stop Arguing and Have Fun!

Led by Brian Elliott

Stop Arguing And Have Fun! is a workshop focused on heightening while liking your scene partner. Making the decision up front to try to get along with your scene partner leads to stronger relationships, bigger characters, and more unique scenes. In improv, heightening the game of the scene too often devolves into two improvisers arguing with one another. Liking your scene partner keeps heightening fun! Learning how to heighten without falling into a trap of predictable conflict is a skill that can be useful to both beginning and experienced improvisers. In this 3 hour workshop, we will explore how to effectively heighten a scene beyond the simple choice of getting progressively angrier at one's scene partner. We'll focus on warm-ups, exercises, and general philosophies for how to heighten the game of your scene while liking your scene partner.

  • Time: 7-10pm
