Flying by the seat of my pants
Today I had my first character development session with Dian Perry (as previously referenced). It was awesome.
After finishing my acting degree I moved to New Zealand for five years and really got into improvisation. Since returning to the UK I’ve done very little and today I was reminded how much joy it brings me! Sure, it can be totally terrifying flying by the seat of your pants, but it is so freeing! It’s so wonderful to truly get out of your own head and just trust your instincts.
I’m the same when I do presentations, obviously I need to know my stuff, but I prefer to read the room and adapt, than to overally rehearse my notes. I know this is different for many.
Are you a fan of improv? I‘d love to know.
