Event Details

Level: Experienced

This workshop will focus on slowing down, connecting with yourself and your scene partner for rich, captivating scenes.

Discover the freedom of playing from instinct and sensation, rather than thinking, as we bring awareness into the body and really listen. We will look at the emotional connection with your scene partner, feeling the relationship and giving space for the alchemy between these players in this moment.

Playing from the heart creates scenes that really spark. When we get out of our chattering heads and into our senses, creativity flows and compelling connections emerge which may be joyously funny or deeply touching.


Slow burn scenes rooted in emotional connection

Listening to your own internal sensations

Expressing emotion

Min. participants 6, max. participants 12. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.

This Experienced elective runs Wednesday 28th April 7 pm – 9.30 pm BST

Experienced (18 months+) A class for skilful players, especially those who have finished improv training programmes at their school and are looking to widen their horizons. These classes will make the assumption that you are comfortable performing longform improvisation and will push you.

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.

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.
