We're going to do a workshop type of event this evening focusing on improvised "object work." This is the concept of interacting with the imaginary world in which you're improvising. Tired of doing improvised scenes where it's just two of you standing there and talking? This should help spice things up!
For example, if your scene takes place in a restaurant, you have plenty of objects around you that you can play with to make your improv more visually interesting. Fiddle with a salt shaker, interact with a cash register, flip some burgers, etc. You're only limited by your imagination!
We'll do a series of exercises aimed to help both newcomers to improv, and those with more experience, to better understand and practice the idea of object work.
