Event Details

Level: Experienced

Toss out the rulebook and follow the fun: this is improvisation at its most playful.

What happens when we let go of rules and formats? When we perform exactly the show that needs to be performed today? When we stop worrying about where we’re supposed to be and just play?

Freeform is exhilarating, liberating and joyful. Whether you’re looking for the next step in your improv journey, or you’re simply keen to rediscover those wonderful feelings of inspiration and mischief, freeform will open up new worlds for you.

In this Nursery/Maydays Online Freeform Course, you’ll learn the techniques that make for seamless, well-timed edits and allow you to always follow the fun. You’ll gain a broader understanding of theme, and how to perform improv that is not only entertaining but also meaningful and alive to all possibilities. You’ll also revisit well-known games and skills to see how freeform improv builds on what you already know, to create vibrant, dynamic theatre.

Syllabus includes:

Edits: how to move between scenes with maximum pace, inspiration and theatricality

Theme: how to make sense of your show when anything can happen

Pacing: how to invest in a variety of scenes, and pay them off for impact and comedy

What the show needs: how to be playful and confident, but always at the service of the show
