This post is about how improv trains you to see the present moment and not worry, as much, about the future.
In a level 1 class, two students were doing a scene and one looked stuck. A bit more than I usually see.
"What are you thinking about?" I asked.
The student said, “I’m trying to think of what’s going to happen.”
"You don’t have to worry about what’s going to happen," I said.
"But then, how do I know what to do?"
It was such a reasonable answer that I was stunned. I haven’t thought about what is going to happen in an improv scene in years.
This is my favorite post about improv theory. To me, it’s beautiful.
