As improvisers, we all have different strengths. Some of us produce as many great characters as Gary Oldman, some are as fast as Robin Williams, some play emotion like Lawrence Olivier. These differences are what make us special and unique, the reason why people come back to watch us play time after time. But they can also be a trap.
We are all great at hiding the things we hate and favouring the things we are good at, but what happens when we bring our faults into the light, examine them and try to do something about them?
Join Nursery artistic director Jules Munns for a day of discovering your strengths and weaknesses, confronting your fears and realising that all those things you thought you couldn’t do aren’t so scary after all. In fact, they’re rather fun and liberating.
“Jules was very good at balancing giving feedback and letting things go. He seemed to know when he could push people a bit and wasn’t shy about doing it. The feedback during and after scenes was great, helped me to really learn.” Andrew, actor.
