Performing Improv Level 1: Telling Stories

17th May – 7th June

Mondays | 19:00 – 21:00

Storytelling is at the heart of improvised theatre & comedy.

In this 4-week course, we will explore Keith Johnstone-inspired techniques to help craft and shape our ability to tell satisfying stories on the spot. 

You’ll work on building your communication skills & confidence when telling stories and train narrative instincts to help grab and sustain audience interest.

An excellent course for writers, performers or anyone who wants to bring storytelling into their life and work.

This is part of our Performing Improv programme, which focuses on the skills to perform improv on stage.
