Advanced Improv: Characters for Narrative with Caitlin Campbell

When we start a show from scratch every night, how do we capture our audience’s imagination from the very first second?

29th September – 20th October

Tuesdays 19:00-21:00

 

An improviser walks out onto a bare stage, with no costume, no props, and a completely clean slate. When we start a show from scratch every night, how do we weave an engaging story, build a rich world and capture our audience’s imagination from the very first second?

 

In this four week advanced course, students will learn to create and embody characters that do all of the above and more. We’ll approach characters as drivers, messengers and catalysts for our storytelling, and step into their shoes to add detail and richness to our improvised worlds. 

 

Using exercises and tools gathered from a career in creating and performing improvised genre and narrative shows, this course will challenge and develop students looking to take the next step in their journey with improvised narrative.
