Improv Jam – Thursday 28 August 2014

This week’s jam: You Say Prawn, I Say Ghetto

This week’s jam is brought to you by the letter .

The suggestions we get for a scene can be explored in a million different ways, but often they are taken literally. Such interpretation can work perfectly well, but it can also be limiting and restricting to our scene partners and the possible scope of a scene. This week we’re going to encourage players to hop skip and jump as far from the original suggestion as possible – stretching meaning to encompass personal meanings, themes and simply being wildly inspired by a word. Literalists will be beaten, literally (not “literally figuratively”; literally).

Improv Jam – Thursday 21 August 2014

This week’s jam: Unity!

This week’s jam is brought to you by the letter thorn.

We are all One.  Like peas in a pod, like the petals of a flower, like androids from the same factory.  Listening and adapting to “fit” with your scene partner is central to improv, and in that spirit we’ll be doing some exercises on mirroring and matching each other, followed by lots of playtime. 

All our names will be in the hat.  We are One.  We are love.  Those who are not love will be destroyed.

Bring Your Roar

It’s Time For DIY Improv Comedy

Thursday 14th AugustGorilla Burger 2014_web

It’s time. Time to get up and do something cool. Or encourage your friends to have a few drinks, and then get them to get up on stage. Whether you play or watch it’s going to be ace. Parky’s gonna bring us hours of inspired theatrical foolery.

This is an excellent opportunity to play with new people, have fun on stage, drink and laugh or just meet some folks and get a feel for what we do here in MissImp – this is live, unscripted comedy theatre.

You should BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar).

Anyone can play. Put your name in the hat and come up and do a scene (or a shortform game from the other hat if you like). We’ll pick names out of the hat and performers will get to try out playing with new people – or even playing for the very first time.

No previous experience required.
