Sound Motion And Connection –
The Basics of Situational Improv
Workshops are based on the SMaC principle of communication. All communication is broken down into three basic elements – sound, motion and connection. Sound is what we say, and is most heavily relied on in communication.
Motion relates to our body language and awareness of how others perceive it. Connection is about using both body and voice to accurately convey meaning. Connection also relates to understanding and respecting the personal space and comfort level of others.
Finding The Funny
Humor is an important factor in communication. It alleviates fear and creates a positive connection. But what makes a joke funny? It’s more than words. Using the SMaC principles, participants learn to be comfortable adding comedy to public speaking and day to day interactions.
Fundamentals of Comedy
Comedy is, to a large extent, an innate talent for making people laugh. But, there are identifiable elements of rhythm, exaggeration of circumstances and surprise that can be learned and utilized in day to day communication.
