Friday 14th June | 10:00 – 13:00

Despite our best intentions, we sometimes find ourselves playing the same scenes, same characters, same games over and over again.

All The Paints In The Box is a joyful approach to reignite curiosity, helping us shake off our creative cobwebs, identify the habits that have turned into patterns, and push out to the furthermost edges of what’s possible in improvisation.

This workshop is aimed at people who have already practised scenework in improv, and is ideal for people who have already done introductory courses in improv (such as Performing Level 1 courses at the Bristol Improv Theatre) or who are already comfortable acting and holding their own in improvised scenes.

Praise for Jim:

An inspiring experience. It was a true creative journey, and Jim’s encouragement to push us past the point where we were collectively struggling for new ideas made it a memorable and enriching experience.”

Their workshop was delightful to experience, like a series of nuanced revelations that feel like self-discoveries.”
