EIIF: Owning Your Scene – Jason Shotts (Sold Out)

Scottish Storytelling Centre
Comedy, Improv
Edinburgh International Improv Festival

Suitable for Intermediate Level and above.

Learn exercises that prioritise vulnerability over defensiveness; a
concept of improv that seems easy on paper but can be difficult to put
into practice.

A stumbling block for improvisers is the natural
inclination to try to “fix” or “change” partners; consequently, scenes
can struggle with lack of focus on “owning” our choices/wants/POV.
Learn how to balance the “weird” and “normal” in scenework, as too much
(or not enough) of one of these elements and the audience will struggle
to connect with what we’re creating.

There will also be focus on
decision-making (“What is this scene about?” and “What kind of scene is
this?”) and how to communicate that information to our scene partners.

Blank Script presents the Edinburgh International Improv Festival (EIIF), Scotland’s first and only festival dedicated to improv. Across 4
days over 75 performers from across the globe will amaze with their
spontaneity, quick wit and ability to make you laugh your socks off.
Scenes, sketches, songs and stories will be made up on the spot from
audience suggestions.
