Improvising Pathos with Lucy Fennell (Online Taster Session)

Wednesday 23rd February
19:30 – 21:00

There is beauty in sadness and freedom in pathos. Add it to your improv toolbelt and learn to sit happily and safely in the silence of emotionally grounded, poignant scenes.

This taster is for anyone who has been moved by the improv they have watched, craves emotional authenticity in performance and knows how uplifting it can be to place comedy and tragedy side by side.




Lucy is an improviser, intimacy director, theatre maker and the mischievous creator of The Dirty Picnic Club; a social experiment/ improv show. She is a founding member of Impromptu Shakespeare and as well as improvisation, Lucy has trained in Lecoq, clowning and bouffon, and in intimacy direction with ISS (intimacy for stage and screen). She is also a qualified teacher specialising in working with students with SEMH. 

Lucy is interested in cultivating authentic, candid improvised performance and is fascinated by the art form’s capacity to jolt and surprise both audience and improviser. She is committed to creating a nurturing, open space for participants to discover, learn and be inspired.
