Great scenes are at the heart of great improvisation. So let’s spend some real time on them. Ideal accompaniments to the nursery longform or narrative courses, these classes are deep-dives into particular areas of scenework. They are also great workouts for intermediate or experienced players. Our expert teachers will give you simple, usable tools that can be employed in a wide variety of improvisation contexts. Students will work in detail on a single aspect of their scenes, receive feedback and, most importantly, get time to play, both in break out rooms and in front of the class.
Scenes that start clearly and boldly, often continue that way. Those that don’t can sometimes flounder and stutter as they try to find their game, heart or inspiration.
This class will give you a range of powerful ways to start a scene and then continue what you have begun, all without restricting your partner’s choices. Working with character, attitude, premise and emotion, with a little bit of plain weirdness thrown in for good measure, you will see how to bring something to the scene that is inspiring to both for both scene partners. You will never step onstage without an idea again.
How to initiate, both with and without a suggestion
How to support your partner’s initiations
Bringing together apparently contradictory initiations
Min participants 4, max participants 12.
This intermediate elective runs Wednesday 28th October 7 – 9.30pm GMT
Intermediate (3/6 months+) These classes will be opportunities to add tools to your growing toolbox. Normally these classes will expect players to be confident playing scenes. These classes will provide practise and specific new skills.
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.
(Wednesday) 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm GMT
