Improv Drop-In: Thursday 31 January 2019

This week’s drop-in: 240 Characters (and More) 

Brought to you by Emily.

This workshop is for if you’re feeling a bit stuck in a rut with your character work! We’ll be exploring ways to play further away from ourselves – from playing different people to animals to inanimate objects!

From nuanced and Oscar-worthy to silly and wacky, we’ll be trying out some new exercises that’ll help you reach beyond yourself and discover a whole host of characters you can play!

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 24 January 2019

This week’s drop-in: Making a Connection

Brought to you by Liam.

Ever feel a bit adrift in a scene? A simple answer to this predicament is just reconnecting with your scene partner – they’re the only other person on that stage with you, and the only way you’re gonna make this work is by pulling together!

We’re gonna work on a bunch of exercises about establishing a connection between two improvisers and how finding that connection (be it at the beginning of a scene, or part way through) can be the thing that really gets the scene going!

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 17 January 2019

This week’s drop-in: Playfulness

Brought to you by Ben.

One of the best things about improv is finding a little thing that just tickles you and playing with it. This week is all about finding joy in the simple stuff of a scene and sharing that enjoyment with the audience.

We are going to do some work on heightening the silly things to get a big response, use some clowning techniques to find new ways of interacting in scenes and just try to have the best time possible with our scene partners.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 3 January 2019

This week’s drop-in: What’s happening!?

Brought to you by Lee.

The holidays can be a disorientating time, we don’t know what day it is, where we are or what we’ve eaten. Ever been that way in a scene? Unsure what is going on with your character or partner?

To start the year we’re going to build our awareness of where we are from the very start of a scene. We’ll work on a series of exercises on verbal and non-verbal communication and listening, finding strength in giving and receiving gifts, and taking the easy choice to drive engaging, funny improv. Can’t wait to play!
