What is Improv?
Improvised Comedy is the art of making up scenes as you go. All scenes, dialogue and characters are made up on the fly. You may have seen or heard of improv comedy through the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway.
Improv is more than a skill-set used by performers and actors, the skills you learn are hugely transferable to every day aspects of life such as:
Building confidence personally, socially and professionally.
Unleashing your self-expression and creativity.
Boosting your mental health and wellbeing.
Developing spontaneity, cognitive adaptability and flexibility
Enhancing work presentation & public speaking skills.
Meeting new people and making new friends.
Not Stand-up Comedy:
Don't worry - Improv Comedy is not stand-up comedy. You are not on your own ‘making jokes’. In fact, you don’t even have to consider yourself to be a 'funny person' to do improv.
All About Teamwork and Fun:
Improv is about working together as a team to spontaneously create scenes & sketches. Laughter is guaranteed because comedic moments and humour are a natural by-product of playfulness, trust, non-judgmentalism and creative flow.
About the Course:
In this 6 week term, you will get to know each other in the group, build trust, cooperate, and validate each other’s ideas. You will progress together as a team, and have each other’s back as you learn to play, laugh, gain confidence and succeed.
Each week we will ...
Play improv warm up games and scenes
Listen and accept ideas
Co-create scenes together
Appreciate your own and others' creativity
Commit to self and each other
Boost your social connections and wellbeing
Laugh solidly for two hours!
