Suggestions: Setting Up For Success w/ Josh Nicols (Wed 7/29)

The fact that the audience pushes the first domino sets improv apart. That should be honored. In the DNA of every audience suggestion you can find character, setting and emotional information. This class will cover how to turn suggestions into inspiration. It will focus on tools that will give you playable choices at the top of scenes. These tools will also help you be on the same page with your teammates without clunky narration. It’ll help you avoid focusing scenes on invisible objects, or scenes that don’t honor one of the most unique qualities of improv, the audience suggestion.
