The Straight/Absurd Dynamic w/Chris and Tami
The goal of the Strait-Absurd workshop is to teach students to identify the roles of strait/absurd characters at the top of the scene. This is a classic comedic dynamic that emerges in improv scenes naturally and frequently. Once students begin to understand the elements of this dynamic at play during a scene, they find it is easier to shape the scene, heighten the scene and find the funniest, smartest choices more easily and quickly. This workshop runs students through exercises playing both strait and absurd characters and helps to guide them to understand what truly makes their characters one or the other.  We work on pacing and reactions, experiment with emotional choices, learn to better feed each other information, and clearly communicate intention in the scene though the dynamic of strait/absurd. This workshop will teach the improv student to look for clues at the top of the scene that will define the dynamic and then intellegently map the remainder of the scene.
