About this Event
1st Saturday of the Month
Scenes and exercises specifically designed for you. Receive in-depth notes and feedback in a caring environment.
If there are aspects of your improvisation you feel frustrated with, aspirations that you want help achieving, or someone to point out the things you are doing really well and push you to do them more, this workshop is for you. The Improv Clinic is a nurturing and supportive space where you get time dedicated to figuring out – and experimenting with – your own specific improv goals, or identifying what those goals might be.
What to expect:
- Scenes and exercises specifically designed to push or nurture you as an individual improviser (the same exercises will not be repeated by the entire class).Few, if any, exercises in breakout rooms without an instructor present to guide and give feedback.
- Personalised feedback from both expert instructors that details the areas of improvisation where you shine as a performer, and specific notes on what to work on moving forward.
- Skills and techniques to help you overcome the improv hurdles you might be facing.
Please fill out this questionnaire to allow our teachers the opportunity to learn a little about you before the clinic:
