Respect. That’s the rule for February.

From my explanation of this project:

2) Respect – This sort of goes along with “Yes, And…” and agreement, but you really need to respect your scene partners. You are both the most important person on stage and the least important person on stage simultaneously. You need to respect what they say and make them look like the shit because if everyone is making everyone else look good, then everyone looks good. But if someone is focusing solely on themselves, then it is harder to connect with them and therefore harder to produce good improv.

Okay, so I’m very curious to see how this manifests itself.  I consider myself a pretty respectful person, but I also know that there are some people who have literally demonstrated that they are not respect-worthy.  I am excited to begin another month’s adventure.

Any thoughts you have on the topic are welcome!

  1. Or is respect your “tool” for exploring your life in a new way? : ) Dan Diggles in his book Improv For Actors calls this, “make your partner look good.” I really enjoy reading your posts and seeing where your journey is taking you.
