Improv Abstinence w/ Addy Najera

We know there are situations in which an improviser can feel personally uncomfortable in a scene (sexual situations, taboo subjects, unflattering endowments). Perhaps they even feel the crowd becoming uncomfortable with a particularly controversial topic. We want to provide tools and exercises for improvisers to help themselves in those situations. While taking care of your scene partner is important, the only thing an individual performer can control is their own reaction to content in the scene. The purpose of this workshop is to instill greater confidence in our improvisers to tackle specifically uncomfortable content in their scenes.
