A six-week introduction to improvisation
About this Event
This Open course runs every Tuesday for 6 weeks from 10th November to 15th December, 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm GMT
Open – A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.
Using games and exercises from fifteen years of putting on shows, our experienced teachers will introduce you to techniques, behaviours and habits of mind that will make you more confident in new situations and more resilient in challenging ones.
Our Beginners Improv Course will make you a better listener and communicator at work and home, and build your creativity. After all, improvisation is for everyone, not just performers.
We’ll introduce you to key improv concepts including:
- How to let go of negative thought patterns and say ‘yes’ to what’s fun in the moment.
- How to create scenes and ideas from nothing.
- How to listen deeply and supportively.
- How to add to an idea in simple steps.
A six-week course with a maximum group size of twelve, this is the ideal place to begin your improv journey. It gives a grounding in the core skills of improvisation that is experiential, challenging, and above all, hugely enjoyable.
