I did an amazing exercise with Gary Austin at the Chicago Improv Festival. It was an intimidating solo exercise, but very rewarding.

It was called the 48th Street Experience.

He had us walk back and forth on the stage and do an arc when we get to the edges of the stage. In the arc, he asked us to change something about our physicality. And walk as that "character". The way you hold yourself physically, should determine the way you walk. From the audience's perspective, it should look like you're simply just walking by a store window.

After it's evident that each new physicality looks like a different person walking, he had us start talking about anything we wanted while still walking. When we changed physicality, he wanted us to change our voice too... but let the voice "come from our physicality". (it sounds like pretentious artsy crap, but it actually was very cool)...

Then, finally, he asked us to stay on stage and keep talking. Anytime that we felt like we were "thinking" about what to say next, he wanted us to dramatically change our physical location (like run over and sit in a chair, or lean against a wall). And whatever happened... happened.

It was so fun. And everyone's was so different. One guy, a 60 year old British guy, started talking about how he was a bad father and he ended up getting to the fact that turning 60 was the most liberating experience of his life.

Another guy talked about his love for dance when he was younger.

One girl talked about her eye patch in kindergarten and played all the characters who made fun of her.

I talked about public transportation and went through like 10 different people on the train.

Some were funny. Some were serious. All were great in their own way.

I'll post one that Ryan had us do a couple of times that I really liked (I think you can find it on irc in the exercises thread)
The Park Bench Of Truth

You are just yourself and the other person is themself and you just talk about REAL stuff from your life While sitting on a "park benck" (couch or whatever else two people could sit on)....it is cool!
Then after that the same 2 people were told to do something physical (Like fix a car) they still were them selfs talking about real things while fixing a car!
This exercise is good to show real reations that sometime are ignored in scenes and to show how cool basing things in truth is.


Yes and....release

Wow, I like that Park Bench of Truth Idea, never played it before but I think it would be like, really cool.
Anyway, an exercise that I do now and then is one that Bob told us about. It's that License Plate Game. What it is is a warm up for the game "What are you doing?" you just look at the 3 letters of the license plate, and try to come up with an action using those 3 letters. I think that exercise prepares you for "What are you doing?" specifically, but also helps you come up with random stuff. The great thing about that exercise is you can do it just about anytime when you're driving.

Perhaps this is the most simple exercises but it's one I like the most. I wonder what people think about it...I call it..."People Watching."
Basically I sit in a public place, for instance I work in the mall so I watch there and...WATCH PEOPLE. I watch everything about them, their walk, the way they use their hands, the way they express themselves, the way they interact with others. It is slowly but surely filling my well of characters which I can dip my bucket into any time!

I actually had to do that for a movement class in coledge. we hod to go somewhere we could watch a person for a few minutes without them knowing and we couldn't hear them. then based on how they move we had to create a character out of them.

One of my favorite exercises is something that Austin is doing at Off the Wall. Two characters stand across from each other and they say lines that are supposed to affect each other. When they have done as such the director tells them to step forward. The actors approach each other as their relationship develops. The exercise ends when they characters are basically standing on top of each other. It's a really neat visual to see that happening between two people. It also makes me very aware of the words I say on stage.

I don't know how mich formal acting training austin has had, but that is an excercise directors tend to use when teaching scene work with the stanislavski(sp?) acting method, it is reall good.

That tecnique is something that we in Clearfield have done as well. It was super cool. For me, it helps to remind me that every thing I say should affect my scene partner and, heighten, or clarify the scene. Josh has started to add variations as well to try and bring about different results.

that exercise that austin did at off the wall is a really good one. i did it in a class here a month ago or so. one thing i'd like to add, and may do at septemberprov, is that you don't need to "affect" someone to build a relationship. anytime you give information about your history, or about yourself in a familiar way, or about you partner... you are building a relationship.

we take a step forward on those too.

yeah, that's a really good exercise to keep things on stage and on each other.

Erin brought back some really good stuff from New York! I really like this exercise that she introduced to us Skirts--when you're doing a scene between two people, repeat everything the other person says and vice versa. You don't have to repeat exactly, but just so you get the gist. Like Character A says, "I think you're beautiful," and Character B says, "You think I'm beautiful? That makes me want to kiss you." And Character A says, "Wow, you want to kiss me!" And so on. It really teaches you to listen to each other and make sure you're on the same page. When you pay attention to everything, it gives you so much more to work with. And it really helps your yes-and-ing skills.




cool stuff rocks

I would be happy to teach it the way that I taught it to the Skirts at the next Clearfield Rehearsal that I am at. grin
