About the Event
Welcome to IMPROVISATION FOUNDATIONS!
What is improvisation, we hear you ask? "Improvisation is the process by which we create" (Lyn Pierse). It's taking what you have on hand, in the moment, and creating something with it. It is something we use in our daily lives, at work and leisure, and also on the stage as performers. Improv is play!
IMPROVISATION FOUNDATIONS is part 1 of On The Wing's progressive curriculum of theatrical improvisation skills.
Over the course of 4 weeks we will be exploring some of the foundational skills of improvisation, such as:
- Trusting our instincts
- Making and accepting an 'offer'
- Introducing an ‘objective’
- Advancing and extending the narrative
- Finding the game
This is a beginners' course in improvisation, and no prior experience is necessary - just a willingness to have a go and have fun! The course is suitable for participants 16 years and over.
IMPORTANT: The 4-week program in itself is also progressive, and participants will need to commit to the full course, as it is not designed to facilitate "drop-ins". If you can't make it to all 4 weeks, but are interested in developing your skills, please send an email to email@example.com and we will add you to our list to receive an alert when our next introductory class is being held! Likewise, if you have had prior experience/learning of improv skills, drop us a line and we can let you know when our intermediate class is in the pipeline.
