Saying "yes and" is a key part of improvisation. "Yes" to the reality that your scene partner offered. "And" to add information. However, holding yourself prisoner to "yes and" can lead to a scene, a character, a situation, that is problematic or simply not something you wish to explore. In this class, students will explore techniques to maintain agency in the "Yes And" world of improvisation. It’s important to say “yes” to things outside our comfort zone, yet part of safety is knowing you have the power to explore the stories you're excited to explore and to dive into the type of discomfort that will help you grow.
