I love witty banter, being loquacious, and… unironically, silence.
The idea of a silent partner is someone who supports the business behind the scenes. In improv, supporting our partners — being with our partners instead of rushing to the next thing — is also supporting ourselves in the offers we’ve both made to that point. Giving yourself those two beats of breathing, feeling, connecting to what-just-happened is energizing!
“Silence is a source of great strength.”Lao Tzu
Performers who already enjoy the slower, more conversational pace in scenes, will shine in this workshop
Finally, we can make things easier for ourselves — reduce the temptation to invent — by accepting the reality we’ve created, including silence. There’s a reason strangers talk about the weather — its one of the least political shared topics one can broach and therefore a way of connecting
I’m looking forward to introducing this workshop to the world — in-person and virtually. I hope you sign up and find your strength as a Silent Partner
