Performing Improv: Stories & Stage (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, we take a look at the bigger picture of developing an improvised theatre show.
When does the story start? Where should it go next? Most importantly, how do you decide this in the moment?
We'll train your skills in storytelling and stagecraft, until you're ready to create a fully-narrative improv show!
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.
Stories & Stage is part of a carousel of four courses, which all provide a different approach to Performing Improv. The other courses are Great Scenework, Creating Characters and Singing Songs. These courses can be taken in any order. To check out the other courses please see our main Performing Improv page.
