Performing Improv Level 2: Exploring Narrative

13th June – 25th July

Mondays | 19:00 – 21:30

In this 7 week course, we will learn how to tell a satisfying shared story on stage through the medium of improvised narrative. Using Keith Johnstone inspired exercises and techniques, we’ll delve into constructing story arcs and engaging in supportive ensemble work, as well as exploring a number of tools to shake up and inspire participants’ scenework skills.

Suitable for those looking to develop their storytelling, improvised narrative and scene work skills.
