Lee Whites Introduction (or Recap) to:
Tempo and Rhythm & The Power of Silence
For those who may have missed these classes or for those that were there and would like to explore more. These two topics are the ones I’ve been focused on for the last few years and this class will be a good intro/refresher to my philosophy.
Tempo and Rhythm
In this course we will explore the tempo and pacing for our scenes. Find the speed and pulse of the stories with your partner that is both comfortable and inspiring. Many fast scenes are created because of panic and fear instead of it being a choice. We can use our natural impulses to inspire the tone of our scene. So let’s focus on using the speed and tempo of our scenes and characters to inspire the scenes. We want to connect and discover different velocities for our scenes with our partners. Too often our scenes follow similar rhythms over and over but we often need more variety in our shows. Adding style and pulse to an average scene can elevate it to new places. Learn to follow your partners impulses as well as lead your partner. Sign up for this class and learn to slow down and speed up with intention, and add that extra spice to our performances.
The Power of Silence
Improvisers all over the world have one thing in common. They all talk too much on stage. We can see the potential in building tension when we start to use silence as a tool. Silence and less words in general can not only add to the intensity of the scenes, it can activate the audiences imagination and engages them to be more invested in the scene. This workshop explores techniques to help inspire your scenes to be more efficient and effective with less words, more emotions, and the potential to spark the audiences minds.
