Reviews and Testimonials:
A flexible weekly improv workout for people with previous improv or acting experience. You can come along whenever it suits you, be that every week or just once in a while, whenever you're free and want to do some improv.
We create a safe, fun, friendly and supportive environment where improvisers are free to play and be themselves.
Each session will start with some fun warm ups and core skills like Listening & Yes And before focussing on the week's main theme. In the second half there will be a mix of fun performance games, scenes, stories and formats.
Most of all the focus will be on improvising in a fun and carefree way, getting lots of practice in, and having a laugh with improv.
This workshop is suitable for people who've done a beginners workshop with us, or have done a bit of improv or acting before and want to keep practicing on a regular basis in a flexible way.
