Rule of 3: Patterns, Patterns and something else: Learn to Heighten like a #Boss

After almost every improv show I’ve performed, an audience member has asked “you all rehearsed before, right?” Though improv has no scripts, we do use patterns to find structure in a scene. In this class, we will take a closer look at comedy patterns, how to find them, and using them to help elevate our scenes. Does comedy really come in threes???

Learn what comedy patterns are and how to find them in scenes

How to use patterns to identify games and beats in scenes

Min. participants 6, max. 12.

This intermediate workshop runs Sunday 11th July, 5 – 7.30 pm BST.

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 practice and specific new skills.
