What of the Watchers? The Role of the Audience in Improvisation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Moderated by Randy Dixon, Artistic Director, Unexpected Productions, and Patti Stiles (Australia), Artistic Director Impro Melbourne and International teacher/director/performer.

  • Description: This panel will discuss the role of the audience in improvisation. Is the audience made up of enemies or allies? What is the audience doing while you improvise? How do they take in the offer, narrative, and information you are presenting? Are they telling a story and willing to do all of the work for you? Or just looking to laugh and have everything explained to them in straightforward terms? What is the value of suggestions and should we be utilizing them in a more integral way in our improvisational storytelling or relying on the offers of the improvisers more simply to be witnessed by the audience? Included would be a discussion of methods to fully utilize the resource of experience that sits in the seats and watches us improvise.
