Love The One You’re With

Conflict and emotional distance can work their way into one’s play over time until they become dominant choices. But what if instead of choosing conflict, we choose love instead? Making a conscious decision to appreciate and collaborate with your scene partner can take your scenework in unexpected and wonderful directions. In this workshop, Justin and Kelly will introduce techniques for finding meaningful connections with your scene partner, and explore the virtues of playing from a standpoint of total agreement. When you choose to embrace your scene partners rather than resist them, the possibilities for your scenework are truly limitless.

**About Justin & Kelly**

    Have you ever watched improv on Whose Line Is It Anyway or gone to the Second City in Chicago and thought, "Hey! I want to do that!" but didn't think you could? Guess what? YOU CAN!!!

    Join us for a FREE improv workshop where you'll get some easy-to-learn, low pressure instruction on improvisation with people at the same level. Intro students are invited to stick around for the Improv Jam afterwards where they get to play in a safe, fun environment with veterans of the improv community. The workshop is a great way to meet people, have fun and discover that you have what it takes to be an improviser. Best of all, it’s free!
