Event Details

Level: Intermediate

Improv is heading more and more towards comedy. Though this is a recipe for a very entertaining night, we miss improv that can tell a story without the pressure of being funny and just for the sake of telling a good story. This workshop gives us techniques that help us focus on story, reality, and emotion.

What to expect:
-Building compelling stories
-Emphasizing the reality of the scene
-Emotion-based scenes and exercises
The Nursery Sunday Classes
We work hard to provide a welcoming environment for all improvisers. In order to give space to different experiences and identities, the Nursery has worked to provide opportunities for specific groups to meet, connect, and improvise with one another. Each workshop will cover different topics depending on the instructor. Sometimes sessions will be aimed at particular skills, issues and questions, and other times they will simply be a place for people to come together and play.
The Nursery is constantly working to create programming based on the needs of our current students and the global improv community. If there is an underrepresented group that you would like to see have a workshop, send an email to
This Intermediate workshop runs Sunday 14 November, 5 – 7.30 pm BST.
Intermediate (3months+) 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 practice and specific new skills.
