Event description

Description

This workshop is for improvisers and non-improvisers who are interested in developing, maintaining and extending their skills around some of the essential grammar of dramatic improvisation in long form. The methods will be a mixture of games, exercises, and structured improvisations.

The focus for the workshop will be Ensemble and Narrative Skills with particular reference to the fundamental basic grammar of improvised performance identified as:

  • Attention

  • Attitude

  • Tension

  • Action

  • Shift

During a performance improvisers work to engage the audience.

  • How do they know they are engaged?

  • What elements are involved in the creation of a engaging performance?

  • What decisions made by the performers heighten or lessen the drama?

  • Are we aware as improvisers of the implications of our onstage decisions in this regard?

We will be exploring dramatically what improvisers can do to that bring mystery and intrigue for the audience.

The workshop will be a great opportunity to be different, expect a range of games and exercises to extend your knowledge of what is possible in improvisation, and what you are capable of creating.

We will see how it can be used including improvisation for group self-discovery, for education, for devising and performances. We will also discover through spontaneity a different kind of insight into social conflicts for drama in theatre.
