The Kitchen Rules Longform Drop-In is a weekly drop-in for improvisers who are interested in American-style longform comedic improvisation.
Workshops feature a heavy emphasis on scenework fundamentals and establishing truthful, grounded characters with fun comedic patterns.
Our drop-ins are currently focusing on the core fundamental skills of longform. This workshop will cover an important aspect of longform; ensemble improv.
There are many theatrical contexts in which we need more than 2-3 people on stage, and in improv that can make the improv exponentially harder. Improv requires everyone to be on the same page and the more people there are, the more obvious the "page" has to be.
This workshop will cover group scenes, where we need to quickly establish the context and identify what the scene is about for us to all play with the same idea.
These sessions are OPEN TO ALL, but prior scenework experience is recommended.
Theo Worsley began improvising with the University of Bristol's Improv Society in 2013 in order to do "theatre stuff without the chore of learning lines". Since then he has fallen in [strong feelings] for improv and comedy. With them Theo travelled to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe three times in directing/performing roles, performed in a 5* improvised Roald Dahl show, and countless other performances. In his final year of uni, Theo started getting involved in multiple other improv projects outside of the improv society (Real Positive Poles, Eat Pant, Throwback, No Scrubs). Nowadays, Theo teaches with Kitchen Rules Theatre where he is the Marketing Director. he is also part of Improv troupes: Real Positive Poles, The Inheritance, Hot Take,Last Day on Earth, and The Faculty.
Theo still enjoys learning all things improv and has been taught by improvisers all around, such as: Lydia Hensler, Jonathan Pitts, Rebecca Macmillan, Susan Harrison, Carleen Macdermid, Philip Markle, Katy Schutte, as well as other well versed Brizzle improvisers.
He believes in loving/trusting your scene partner, supporting big choices, and having fun.
