Discover the joys, challenges and opportunities of “open” short scenework. By “open”, I mean that
every scene stands on its own, based on suggestions or sometimes not, and not usually connected to other scenes in any way. And by “short”, I mean anywhere between 5 seconds and 5 minutes.
There are infinite improv challenges in open scene work: jumping into scenes fearlessly, finding the path of the scene in a timely manner and following through on it, and of course ending scenes effectively.
Together, we’ll explore the thrills and skills of doing short scenes!
