Online Scenework Booster Improv Course

Take your scenework to the next level


About this Event


Scenes are at the heart of everything we do in improv. So how do we make them pop more often than not?

In this Nursery/Maydays Online Scenework Booster Course you’ll build on the scenic skills you already have while striding out for the areas that bring you the most joy.

You’ll learn how to start fearlessly, how to use what is already happening, and how to develop that all-important connection. You’ll also explore what it really means to play at the top of your intelligence while leaving space for the sublimely twisted logic that makes for true comedy.

And you’ll get instant feedback to help drill the practices that consistently turn good scenework into great scenes.

Syllabus includes:

  • Fundamental skills: boosting the agreement, listening and commitment that ultimately power all great scenes
  • Game: unlocking the comedy of our creations, and uncovering the deeper truths that lie within
  • The fun zone: opening up the areas we want to play in, to say the things we want to say

Min. participants 6, max. participants 12.

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).
