Status is the subtextual language of power, authority, and respect. It’s a vocabulary that colors all our interactions that we’re often not aware of. When we become fluent in status, our improv scenes become both more realistic and colorful.

In this status deep dive, we’ll play with the physical and verbal cues improvisers use to communicate status. Through games, exercise, and scenes, we’ll broaden the range of statuses we feel comfortable playing and refine our ability to use and pick up on subtle status cues. Expect to move and laugh a lot.
