Become awesome at twoprov!
2 person scenes and 2 person shows inspired by groups like Project2, TJ & Dave, Katy & Rach and Dummy, and most of all inspired by you!
You are welcome to book as a duo and exclusively work with each other over the duration of the course to perfect your show, or book by yourself and work with different people over the course.
Over the course goes you’ll be working together to practice different improv styles and genres to gradually find what works for you and develop your own show.
You’ll also be exploring 2 person scene work in great detail, how to edit scenes with only 2 people, how to swap characters with your scene partner, how to run rehearsals with 2 people, and how to play multiple characters throughout a show.
You’ll be building a strong connection with your scene partner, and working together to create a fun new show that you can take into the London improv scene.
