Creating Compelling Characters

Do you want to build compelling and varied characters?
Want to know how to use your character and your scene partner to power the scene you’re in?
Want to learn how to take a character from one scene and pull them back into a longer show in one of Missimp’s most well received forms?


This course follows on from our Level 1 course and aims to expand on the improv basics you learnt and loved and push you in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment. This level draws on the teachings on a range of techniques and teachings from various improv schools and centres on the idea of engaging, interesting characters and how we build and sustain them. Over the intensive weekend course you’ll learn a range of stylistic points and create a variety of weird, wonderful and funny people and use them to power scenes and even entire shows!
