Improv Basics

You've heard of improv, and even seen a show or two. Now it's time to jump in and play in a safe environment with a few special people as open-minded as you, eager, and willing to get silly without fear of judgement. 

This class will reignite your sense of discovery. We go beyond games (but enjoy our fair share on the way) by diving into emotions and storytelling. We're keeping this course very small because trust, collaboration, and honesty between players is the biggest strength a group of improvisers has. We really believe this. And we want everyone to get loads of time to play and try things out.

You'll learn: 

  • using agreement to move forward by saying “yes, and…” to others’ ideas
  • looking after fellow players, allowing everyone to improve and enjoy themselves
  • C.R.O.W. - the basics of creating Characters that are believable, Relationships in scenes, Objectives to strive for, and a vivid picture of Where we are
  • status (high and low) and how to apply it to your scene work
  • so, so much more...


Funnily enough, we do not emphasize being funny in this course. The humour derives from the moment. In this safe environment we will celebrate failing, empowering you to find your voice. You'll learn to be an improviser.

Our Summer 2017 class is just ended. It was wonderful, and we're planning the next round!


Intermediate

You've taken a few classes and maybe even performed a couple times? Then one of our intermediate classes is your jam. Running several times weekly, we work on developing more advanced techniques and really looking after our fellow players. Listening, intimacy, emotional work and slowing down are the name of the game here. We'll also get you ready for performing, if that's up your alley.

Classes run on a weekly basis. Get in touch with your interest and background and we'll fit you in the right class!
