Performing Improv Level 2: Approaches to Scenework

17th June – 8th July

Thursdays | 19:00 – 21:00

Scene work is the beating heart of improvised theatre. This course delves into improv techniques and theory from a range of approaches to help the participants stretch their scenic muscles. Participants will get plenty of time to practice and play at making and shaping scenes with their fellow improvisers, and will get individual feedback from the instructor on their performance.

This course is part of our Level 2 Performing programme, which also includes ‘Making Musicals’’ and ‘Approaches to Scenework’. Completion of the full carousel of Level 1 is recommended prior to taking this course.
