IMPROV IMPROVERS - September 7th/8th 2019

You’ve done a beginners’ improv course, and now you are chomping at the bit to do some more!

Or, you did some improv years ago, and now want to brush up your skills.

Or, you just fancy doing some improv!

Then this is for you.

A 2-day weekend course to revisit basic improv skills, and build on them.

Suitable for anyone who has done a beginners’ class, anyone who has done a bit of improv and wants to get better, and anyone who had done a lot of improv but still wants to work on the fundamentals.

This workshop will go more deeply into the techniques that makes make improvisation games and scenes fly! We will spend time on trust, acceptance, focus, flow and group mind, as well as character, stage, status, object work, and building on-stage agreement and relationships.

Led by Jon Trevor, founder and leader of Box of Frogs.

Cost:      £60

Venue:   Birmingham Theatre School, The Old Fire Station 285-287 Moseley Road , Birmingham, B12 0DX

Improv Beginners' weekend - October 5th/6th

An introduction to the joy, fun and challenge of Improv.!

This is a low-pressure, high-enjoyment workshop in a fun, friendly, supportive and stress-free environment.  Improv is not the same as stand-up; you’re not alone on stage and it’s not about telling jokes or being really quick and witty. It’s about working together as a team with other improvisers to spontaneously create group stories, scenes and sketches.

This course is for adults aged 18+ years. It is aimed at complete beginners – you don’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience whatsoever. You don’t have to be clever, fast or funny either!  Also suitable for those with some improv experience who want to revisit the basics, and for writers, actors and comedians looking to widen their skills and boost their confidence.

Taught by Jon Trevor, founder and leader of Box of Frogs, Birmingham’s premier improv troupe, director of the Birmingham Improv Festival.

Saturday 5th/Sunday 6th October
10am – 5pm each day.

Location: MAC, Cannon Hill Park, Queen’s Ride, Birmingham B12 9QH

Cost: £75 (£69 Concessions)
