About this Event
This Open course runs every Saturday afternoon from 7th November to 12th December, 3.30 pm – 5.30 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.
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.
