About This Course

This is part of our Performing Improv programme, which focuses on the skills to perform improv on stage.

In this performance course we focus on Great Scenework. We will explore various topics including: two person scenes, creating platforms to define a scene quickly, working with your scene partner to discover games or create action, and knowing when and how to end your scene. 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.
