Event Details

Level: Open

This Open workshop runs Monday 5th October, 7 – 9.30pm BST/GMT+1

Open – A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.

Playing Slow (without being boring) – Playing slow is more than improvising slowly. It requires an appreciation of the subtitles of human behavior. By leveraging the small shifts that occur from moment to moment we can turn a thirty second scene into a three minute scene.

Min 4 participants, max 12.

NB: Our electives frequently sell out, but do not despair if this class has. You have not missed your shot. If enough people join the waiting list, we are often able to put the same class on a few days after or in parallel. So if you were excited, join up and we will be in touch.


(Monday) 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST
