Why Duo it?
Improv is built upon the two-person scene and, therefore, duo work makes you a better performer because it holds you accountable for your improv – your choices, your attention, your commitment.
Often, when performing in larger groups, two-person scenes get cut short for any number of reasons: your fellow improvisers want to “save” the scene, may want to play themselves or may want to “add on” to a scene in order to heighten it. When any of these things happen, the two person scene is lost. If you feel you have been stuck doing the same type of improv, this class provides a path to evolved play.
After being in a duo for over 10 years, I can say that nothing else accelerates your growth and increases your stage confidence than being in a duo. The gift of two people playing together without interruption allows the improviser to go deeper, play the nuance of the scene and eliminate the fear of silence.
