Improv comedy is fun to do but it is also possible to create deep and meaningful scenes with improvisation. In this 4-week online course we will use pre-written scenarios to improvise scenes with tension and drama and to create relationships that matter.
The scenarios will include “twists” that influence a character’s motivation, and “turns” that affect the relationship or heighten the conflict. Scenes with multi-faceted characters and meaningful relationships can be not only incredibly dramatic but also incredibly funny.
What to expect:
- Breathing, vocal and movement exercises for warming up.
- Exercises in history in relationships and how that affects a character’s choices.
- Exercises to create and develop characters with depth.
- The teacher will use pre-chosen scenarios for the students to improvise and practice using their character and scene making skills.
Min. participants 6, max. participants 12. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
