ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Agreement is a powerful and important element of improv. This workshop showcases how starting positive, staying on the same team, and beginning with agreement can propel you into a fun scene before you know it! Focus on staying together even during arguments and what might otherwise be considered negative scenarios. We’ll be exploring some techniques and exercises to combat the strange phenomena we all have as improvisers to introduce conflict willy-nilly.
