Women’s Workshop

Women’s workshops aim to create an open and supportive creative space for female-identifying improvisers of all ages and experience levels who may, for whatever reason, feel they would benefit from an all-female class environment in which to learn and play! It’s a safe place to come and be bold and fearless and meet other dynamic women from across the city.

The classes run once a month, and they are stand alone, so you can book one or come along every time. Each workshop is taught by a different teacher and focuses on a specific area of improvisation, and we have some exciting people lined up over the coming months!

 


December’s workshop with Jenny Rowe on Sunday 16th December, 2-5 pm is unfortunately no longer taking place,
but we will have many more Women’s Workshops in the New Year. 
See you there!

Jenny Rowe teaches and performs with improvisational theatre & comedy company, The Maydays, in Brighton and beyond. She’s also in Impromptu Shakespeare, The Concept and improv duo Two Seats, Four Cheeks with Lloydie James Lloyd.  She trained at ACT Brighton and Improv training includes Secondcity & Annoyance Theatre, Chicago. She has taught and performed in America and across Europe, but most recently on a tour of Romania and Bydgoszcz, Poland.

This workshop is called – What are we doing here??

Our relationship to the space and the audience. Jenny is fascinated by how, as improvisers, being in physically different spaces on stage can radically change how we feel and how we feel towards others. Our proximity to each other, our proximity to the audience, and how the way we hold the space increases or decreases our power as performers.

In this workshop, we’ll play with all of the above whilst still allowing ourselves to be as serious or as ridiculous as takes our fancy!

Jen is also a writer, actor and voiceover artist. She recently wrote and performed her new solo show ‘Tiptree: No One Else’s Damn Secret But My Own’ (a true story of Alice Sheldon who wrote science fiction under a male pseudonym for many years) at Stroud Theatre Festival.
