Event Details

Level: Experienced

This course is dedicated to techniques that forge a fierce and stable connection with your scene partner. It is intended to produce improv which is theatrical, patient and beautifully constructed. Create scenes which illicit a range of responses from delighted laughter to open-mouthed wonder.

Work on emotional listening, making clear choices, building a scene together and having an emotional point of view.

We’ll also play with ideas that allow you to be vulnerable, fearless and effortlessly collaborative.

Syllabus includes:

Trust: become comfortable with your scene partners

Clarity, tempo & silence: learn to take your time and pace your scene

Feel something: play with emotional point of view and see how it affects every other aspect of performance

Joy & play: how to be intensely theatrical and still have a great time

The now moment: appreciate the subtleties of an artform that is produced and consumed simultaneously and in real time 

Whatever the level of ability required, all of our classes are safe, supportive environments led by our experienced teachers. Please email us if you are unsure whether a class is suitable for you. If you sign up for a class inappropriate to your level the Nursery/Maydays reserved the right to remove you from the class without refund.
