: Laying the Foundation is the first step in the Core Improv Program at the Improv Resource Center
. In these classes we teach you a specific approach to scene work, one that is understandable and repeatable. Mastering the skills presented in this series of classes will lead to consistently good scenes and occasionally great ones. These classes teach the game of the scene as laid out in the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual
In this class we lay the foundation of the scene by establishing a clear situation which is real and relatable. Through exploring this situation and the environment, and discovering the behavior and point of view of the characters, we build out the world of the scene. We focus on careful listening and agreement to expand and sharpen the situation, until we uncover something unusual, novel or fun.
