Description

This course will reignite your sense of discovery. It's time to jump in and play in a safe environment with a few special people as open-minded as you, eager, and willing to get silly and emotional without fear of judgement. It's a fun introduction to improv whether you're an artist, public speaker, storyteller, or none of those fancy things. You’ll learn to use improv in scenes and in your everyday life.

We start with improv games and slowly begin diving into emotions and storytelling. There is no emphasis on being funny in this course. We believe humour derives from the moment, vulnerable and real. In this safe environment we will celebrate failing, empowering you to find your voice. Over 8 weeks you'll work together with others to create something never done before – you’ll learn to be an improviser.

We're keeping this course small because trust, collaboration, and honesty between players is the biggest strength a group of improvisers has. We really believe this. And we want everyone to get loads of time to play and try things out.

You’ll learn the basics of:

  • Failing with confidence and excitement

  • Looking after your fellow players and dropping any ego

  • Moving forward by saying “yes, and…” to others’ ideas

  • Creating original and believable characters

  • Building real relationships using the complexity of everyday life

  • Striving towards a clear objective with your characters

  • Imagining and really seeing where you are and what is there

  • Working with high and low status to create contrast in relationships

  • Using emotions to add colour and believability to scenes

  • … and much more!

To secure your spot, pay the appropriate amount to the account specified here. There, you’ll also learn more about the course. We’re excited to dive into the wonderful world of improv with you!
