If you’ve ever wanted to give improvisation a go, then this is for you! You’ll gain an insight into the skills required for improvisation whilst improving your confidence by trying something new.
During the course, explore characters and the situations they find themselves in through improvising scenes together. Learn and apply the core principles of improvisation using accepting, building, listening, being ok with making mistakes and avoiding blocking in a wide range of scenarios. You will make things up that surprise yourself!
The sessions will take an explorative and collaborative approach in a supportive and inclusive environment. No experience is necessary. For ages 18+.
