Thoughts Provoked by
an Impro Session
experience to this point' issue can result in quite an extensive research
process but if you are doing an on the spot impro YOU MUST at least quickly
decide where your character has come from, where they are going and why
they are going there. You must do this even if your character is standing
on the one spot for the whole scene. Failure to put those fundamentals
in place leaves the actor in a high risk situation of having to 'act'
rather than just being able to 'do'. Acting is ‘doing’ and
so we MUST know as much as we can about the circumstances that will inform
the character's next choice.
