Physical Acting

For this week and the next we’re going to focus on adding a strong physical component to our improv sketch.  To that end, Mrs. Belinda Quijada is joining us to help work on fundamentals of movement and expression.

Not only do we have to incorporate strong physical action into our sketch, but we also need to maintain a strong narrative and cleverly incorporate all 4 of our improv elements.  In the past, we’ve had a hard time keeping all three of these balls in the air at the same time.  To help us build up our 3 core components, we’ll gradually layer on additional elements over our physical acting.

For reference, here are a few great DI Improv performances that successfully incorporate (1) physical acting, (2) strong narrative and (3) clever integration of all 4 improv elements.
