A new system of creating truth-driven drama in improvisation, that has real impact, every time, whether for longform or short.
Usually, improvised dramatic longforms fall short of the impact that scripted theatre can deliver, because performers rush for the first available problems to address, and the first available connections to make, rather than the underlying issues and the connections that naturally arise. The result is, at best, limited variety, and most commonly, melodrama.
In this new system, players learn how to allow several potential issues to arise, without locking themselves into a path, immediately, building deeper dimensions to their characters and relationships, in scenework that is more true to life. As the scene, or the longform progresses, players learn to find the most meaningful issues that matter to an audience and a scene partner, raise the stakes of these issues, and most importantly, how resist a melodramatic solution and deliver a powerful, authentic result.
