Improv Jam – Thursday 31 July 2014

This week’s jam: Back To Basics*

This week’s jam is run by Ben

This week is all about yes – the most fundamental of the improv rules.

We are going to be going for absolute agreement looking at taking the first moments of a scene, both actions and words and adding the simple logical progression without heading into crazy.

We are going to be playing with various ways of initiating the scene too, playing with mime and silent openings. We will end with a metric fuck ton of scenes.

*not the horrific hypocritical Conservative bollocks of the ’90s. Ben’s too young to remember that.

Improv Jam – Thursday 24 July 2014

This week’s jam: Armando Van Helpful

Vampire Armand

This week’s jam is run by Lloydie

The Armando, also known as The Asssscat or “someone talking and then some scenes happening” is a really simple form to improvise. One of the simplest.

This Thursday we will be running a number of Armandos, but before we do, we will focus on several key skills that will help our improv be the best it can be when performing this form.

We will work hard on “Yes…and”, finding, playing and exploring the game of the scene, and editing / tagging effectively. We’ll drill these skills at the beginning and then spend a lot of time playing.
