Dream or fiction?

“Let improv be closer to dreams than fiction.” — Dave Razowsky, 24th October 2015, Würzburg (DE)

This is another way of saying we should accept absurdness and randomness in our scenes.

Dreams can be so much cooler than fiction, since fiction is still rooted in reality, even fantasy fiction. It doesn’t mean of course that all your scenes should become strange or absurd (neither are all of your dreams), but adding a touch of dream-like quality every now and then can make things really interesting.

Remember, also a dreamworld has rules to abide to, it simply means that some impossible things are treated as normal now.

Fiction has limited options, dreams haven’t. Let’s not limit our improv.

Happy Sharing!
