Performing Improv: Creating Characters (7 Week Course)
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
About This Course
This is part of our Performing Improv programme, which focuses on the skills to perform improv on stage.
In this course, the focus will be on developing techniques to create rich and compelling characters – from comedic to dramatic, and from naturalistic to extraordinary!
We'll delve deep into the characters – how do they feel? How do they think? – and see how this can be used to supercharge your improvised scenes and stories!
At the end of the course there will be a showcase event to apply the skills you have learnt.
This course takes place on Tuesday evenings. For other course times and locations please see our main Performing Improv page.
