Online Scenes and Characters Improv BootCamp

A six-week improv course looking at scenes and characters

About this Event

This course will prepare you for our intermediate level courses; it’s aimed at those who’ve taken our beginners course and want to carry on or more experienced improvisers who would like to add to their character toolbox.

Building on the foundations of improv you already know, this course takes a closer look at how to make a ‘scene’ from nothing and the various characters we can bring to those scenes.

We’ll focus on practising the tools already learned plus adding a few more, including:

  • How to start a scene
  • How to find what’s fun in a scene
  • Using physicality and voice to bring new characters to life
  • Embracing failure!

A six-week course with a maximum group size of twelve, this is the ideal place to continue your improv journey.

Min. participants 6, max. participants 12.

NB: If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24hours notice (and you will receive a warning 48 hours before the course if this looks likely).
