  • Actors & performers
  • Improvisers who wish to refresh/extend their existing skills
Tell me about the course
 
An impro scene can last anything from seconds to a few minutes. The stage is a blank canvass to paint with new characters, relationships, emotions and ideas; in fact anything at all. Unlike impro games there is nothing to guide or restrain you – this freedom requires a strong skill set to successfully create engaging scenes and avoid being left with nothing to say or do.

  • How to begin a scene and find the drama in a scene
  • Finding an end to a scene
  • How to let emotions drive a scene
  • Finding the game of a scene
  • Scenes without words

The day also briefly recaps the basic impro skills.

Who are our teachers?
 
Your tutor for this impro masterclass will be one of the regular Sprout Ideas coaches - used to teaching everyone from students at drama school, to trainee GPs and computer programmers.

Quotes from some of our past students

"Having been slightly nervous beforehand, I
felt the atmosphere was always friendly and welcoming and we were encouraged to try out
new things. I really enjoyed it"

Gilly Cohen


"I had a wonderful
time, I felt it was a smooth introduction
to improvisation"

Z. Adner

"An exceptionally enjoyable and well structured two days - one of the best workshops I have ever attended. Exhausting and exhilarating. A roller-coaster romp through impro and into performance."
D. Barrington-Stefan
