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.
Exercises from The Meisner Technique simplified and applied to improv. Repetitions, repetitions, repetitions. Emotional calls. Living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.
Teacher: Steve Roe.
Lots of practice at improvising scenes, scenes and more scenes. Three line scenes. Who, what where. A fun and simple way of looking at game of the scene, and then some fun scene based performance games to end.
Fun ways to create spontaneous characters. Playing with voice, movement, emotions and genres to create characters on the spot. Staes of tension. Using your own life experiences and feelings to find quick characters.
