Workshops & courses in Improvisation...

The 'Scenes & Storytelling' weekend
 
We'll show you more how to create fantastic improvised scenes and mini-narratives and also teach you a few games based on telling stories.

Who is this course aimed at?

  • Anyone who has completed a beginner's impro course
  • Actors & performers
  • Improvisers who wish to refresh their existing skills

This course is not suitable for complete beginners

Tell me about the course
 
Games are a great way to start learning, practicing and performing because they give you a structure within which to work and often hoops through which to jump. This framework usually helps to drive the performance and often dictates an endpoint. We'll show you some game structures that help you build a story or narrative.

Beyond games, we'll look at completely improvised scenes and narratives with no gimmicks or structures to help (or restrain) you - from a few seconds up to a few minutes and how this might advance to an improvised play. With no structure, this can be both freeing and also scary. How do you begin? How do you find a story with two or more people offering ideas? How do you find an end? We'll show you.

We'll also continue to develop spontaneity and creativity as well as remove the habits that can limit success in impro.

Who are our teachers?
 
There will be TWO tutors - both regular performers and both experienced teachers who are used to teaching everyone from students at drama school, to trainee GPs and computer programmers. They are experts in providing a safe and relaxed atmosphere in which to learn, experiment and have fun.

Group Size
 
The group size is limited to 16 people so there is always a tutor to help if needed.
