Longform Improv Workshop
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
The Bristol Longform Improv Workshop 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 Truth and this workshop is looking at truthful reactions. Sometimes we might feel obligated to react in a silly or predictable or boring manner to help play or find funny.
This drop-in will work on reacting truthfully in a way that serves the scene.
These sessions are OPEN TO ALL, but prior scenework experience and some knowledge of non-narrative longform is recommended.
Steve Hartill is a teacher and fundraiser at the Bristol Improv Theatre and a former president of the University of Bristol Improv Society.
An experienced actor and stage coach, Steve performs with theatre company Degrees of Error, whose improvised murder-mystery play, "Murder, She Didn't Write" recently celebrated its forth consecutive sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was featured on BBC Radio 2.
