Improvisation, often called improv or impro, is a form of acting, improvised conversation, where most or all of what is created at the moment it is performed.
In its purest form, the dialogue, the action, the story and the characters are created collaboratively by the players as the improvisation unfolds in present time, without use of an already prepared, written script.
Improvisation is a simple and easy way to learn skills that are useful in every aspect of life. Learned skills can help in being more creative, job performance, interpersonal relationships and even being more fun person with friends and at parties. The workshops will introduce you to fun and joyful play, expressing your authentic self, allowing yourself to fail, listening and connecting to the group, building trust and bonding with the group.
The hardest thing to learn is not “how to juggle,” but how to let the balls drop. —ANTHONY FROST, Improvisation in Drama
Our workshops are open to all. No experience is necessary, and even the totally terrified beginner will feel safe in this class. There's usually an after party at the nearby pubs and restaurants.
… yes I said yes I will Yes. —JAMES JOYCE, Ulysses
We are creatures of community. Those individuals, societies, and cultures who learned to take care of each other, to love each other, and to nurture relationships with each other during the past several hundred thousand years were more likely to survive than those who did not.
