Advanced Short Form


Advanced Short Form Improvisation:

A fun and high-energy course intended for those with some previous improv experience. We’ll be learning some performance games that have more moving parts to them, learning about how games work and how to make our own, and rounding out scene work skills. The course will include guessing games, physical games, character work, space/object work, status, playing a relationship, adding information in different ways and layering all of the above to create dynamic scenes, games, and shows. We will also laugh our faces off and make lots of friends!

These classes are suitable for just about everybody, no matter your background. The venue has flat access, and most levels of physical fitness and ability can easily be accommodated. You’ll also need good basic English skills, but please don’t be worried if it’s your second language.

8 Tuesdays from 7-930, starting April 18. Classes are held at the Nursery Training Centre, Capital House, Weston Street SE1 3QD. A performance showcase will be scheduled for shortly after the course ends.
