What we do
The Nursery works to promote improvisation as an art form, and a way of thinking and living.
We do this through these main programmes:
- Create opportunities for people to participate, through workshops and jams.
- Develop and produce shows to support performers and raise the profile of improv, such as The Nursery Originals and Edinburgh Fringe.
- Provide training to businesses, to help people to listen and communicate more clearly within their teams.
- Provide affordable rehearsal space for artists and performers.
- Host free social events in our space to create more of a community.
- Welcome performers from other schools and styles, locally, nationally and internationally.
- Offer 6-week beginner courses including free taster workshop Puddle Jumping.
- Offer specialist improv classes for more experienced performers.
- Produce and broadcast shows on our YouTube channel.
- Publish a Blog exploring the theory and practice of improv.
- Create a safe and supportive environment.
