Yes, and

“Yes, and” is the first rule.
That’s what I learned from Yonatan Gruber, in his online improv workshop last week.

I had never done improv before; nothing to do with my tendency to plan for everything 😅

Anyway, “yes and” is a powerful tool.

On stage, you must accept whatever the other performers say. You follow the flow by adding ON TOP, and you can’t negate their narrative.

It means you must LISTEN and hold your impulsive self that contradicts. Crazy right? 😁

You adapt, and build on top of others’ ideas.

Trying to avoid a cliche here, but really, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” comes true.
