Improvised Narrative Scenework with Imogen Palmer (Weekend Intensive)

Sat 10th Aug - Sun 11th Aug 10am - 5pm The BIT

How do we learn to tell a satisfying shared story on stage through the medium of an improvised narrative show?

How can an ensemble learn to work together to support the story arc and create the best story possible?

How do we avoid the ‘boring bits’ of an hour-long format and train ensemble awareness of the shape of the show?

This intensive will use Keith Johnstone inspired exercises and techniques to hone participants’ ability to sustain an exciting hour-long narrative show, as well as explore a number of tools to inspire and shake up participants’ scene work skills.

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

This course is open to performers at all levels but some improv, acting or theatre experience is recommended.
