Online Grounded Scenework Improv Course
About this Event
This Experienced course runs every Thursday for 6 weeks from 5th November to 10th December, 7.30 pm-9.30 pm GMT
Experienced (18 months+) A class for skilful players, especially those who have finished improv training programmes at their school and are looking to widen their horizons. These classes will make the assumption that you are comfortable performing longform improvisation and will push you.
This course is dedicated to techniques that forge a fierce and stable connection with your scene partner. It is intended to produce improv which is theatrical, patient and beautifully constructed. Create scenes which elicit a range of responses from delighted laughter to open-mouthed wonder.
Work on emotional listening, making clear choices, building a scene together and having an emotional point of view.
We’ll also play with ideas that allow you to be vulnerable, fearless and effortlessly collaborative.
