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 focusing on Agreement and this workshop is looking at playing "peas in a pod" i.e. when multiple characters in a scene are unusual in the same way.
We'll look at how to play these scenes in a grounded and believable way, while maintaining the fun.
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.
