Spend a day learning about Game (sometimes known as Game of the Scene) in improv: what it is, what it’s good for and how to make good use of it. The day will involve both long- and short-form improv.
While studying Game isn’t crucial to improvisation, it is extremely useful. It’s something you’ll definitely come across and experience it in your improv activities so you may as well add it to your toolbelt.
What is Game (of the Scene) in improv?
Game is something you will have seen before, both inside and outside of improvisation. It can sometimes be seen as the running joke; a word, gesture or scenario which comes up more than once and is usually exaggerated with every hit. The Game isn’t always the focus of the scene but when it’s done right it can really give life and layers to your scene.
What’s Covered in the Session?
We’ll be looking at how to find games in your scenes without forcing it. We like our improv organic. We’ll also play around with Game in different contexts as a way of exploring it and its possible uses. So to break it down, we’ll be:
- Looking at what makes a good scene without Game
- Playing with techniques that will help add richness to your scenes, which is important for Game
- Exploring playing with Game in both long- and short-form improv
By the end you’ll have decent understanding of Game (of the Scene) and be able to find and use it in your future scenes.
