Class Description

Listening is the basic building block of all improv—you have to listen before you can Yes, And! But what does it mean to really listen? How can you do it better? There is so much to listen to in a scene, even before and between the words that are spoken. In this workshop we’ll break down how to listen not just to words, but to tone, intention, meaning, and consequences. Most importantly, we will explore how to listen to yourself.
