Well, I’m really going for it today! I’ve never had a go at “improv” [improvisational theatre] before and I’m curious to see what it’s like.
I looked for an improv exercise that I could do on my own and found a warm-up exercise called the “Three- Line Solo”. The exercise involves playing a 3- line scene with 2 characters. You play both characters yourself.
You’re supposed to repeat the exercise at high speed so you run through your “easy” characters quickly. I think the aim is to expand your range and to explore the opportunity for “playing out” the parts of yourself that don’t often get much of the limelight.
I got completely caught up in the different states and was barely aware of the camera. I didn’t think about what I was doing or saying, I just waited for the characters to emerge. I can see that this would be fun to do with other people too! (I’m also wondering what would have happened if I’d kept going just a little longer 🙂 )
Take a look at how I got on here ~
I’m just going outside and may be some time.
