The Improv Gym will be returning in the New Year!
Improve your improv!
In your journey through improv, it isn’t always about acquiring a new skill for your improviser’s toolkit or throwing yourself into a new and unfamiliar style of play. Sometimes you need to practise your existing skills, polish up your play, and get your reps in with some feedback/pointers and constructive critique from an expert. Enter the Improv Gym!
Part rehearsal room, part personal improv training, the Improv Gym is a facilitated space where you can work on your skills and draw upon the expertise of our experienced teaching staff. Each session will be led by a Bristol Improv Theatre Instructor who will warm you up and set you going with exercises, games, and scenes that will work on the skill areas that you want to improve.
If you have a particular skill or piece of work that you want to focus on, let the instructor know and they’ll tailor your session accordingly. If you’re working on something with specialised equipment, skills, or knowledge – such as puppetry, singing, dance, or any props/technical requirements – please email firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of time so that we can prepare everything we’ll need to support you in the session.
Each session lasts 2½ hours and is capped at 16 places. The bar will be open afterwards – why not stick around for a drink and a chat?
The Improv Gym is about improving the skills you want to work on – if you’re looking for something a bit more structured or just want to turn up and play, why not try our Improv Drop-ins?
