This intermediate course runs every Sunday afternoon from 6th September to 11th October, 1pm-3pm
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.
Tired of the same-old same-old when it comes to improv games? Wondering how you can jump into your scenes quicker? Our shortform course is exactly the tonic you need.
The move into online formats has changed the way we rehearse and perform, but it also brings some fantastic new opportunities. We’ll make the most of these, with fun new games and challenging exercises developed especially for online play. There’ll also be a chance to revisit some old classics, and find new ways of making them really fire in today’s world.
Over six weeks we’ll hone the skills to launch into your scenes with whole-hearted commitment, so there’s less exposition and more play. We’ll give you techniques and tips that will make your scenes soar. And we’ll show how all these can serve you equally well in longform pieces.
Discover the joy of replay scenes, and the exhilaration of throwing yourself into the middle. Never be stuck on the sidelines again.
