First Saturday of the Month | 12:00 – 14:00

This fun and friendly workshop for people from Global Majority backgrounds is open to all levels – you can be completely new to improv or looking to brush up on your basics and practise improv in a different context. Join instructors Aisha and Kierann to learn and practise improv skills and build your confidence in bringing your whole self to your improv practise, as well as building links with others.

Why are we running these workshops?

We recognise that the improv scene in Bristol and the wider UK is predominantly white, and does not reflect the ethnic and cultural diversity we otherwise see around us. We also recognise that when practising improv there can be a (conscious or subconscious) drive for people to conform to the dominant culture, as well as the potential for people’s (conscious or unconscious) biases to come up. Facing the latter can lead to additional emotional labour for people from historically marginalised and minoritised groups, which is, let’s face it, exhausting. This workshop will create a space that allows people to practise bringing their lived experience into their improvisation, as part of a supportive community.

A note on the term “Global Majority”:

The Bristol Improv Theatre uses the term people of the Global Majority to encompass people from ethnic backgrounds that are or have historically been minoritised in the UK, including Black and Asian people and people from other racialised minority backgrounds.
