IMPROV BEGINNERS WEEKEND WORKSHOP
May 2nd/3rd, Midland Arts Centre.

A fun weekend intensive to learn the core skills of improvised comedy.

Discover the joy, freedom and challenge of Improv.  Learn to be more creative and more playful. Low-pressure, high-enjoyment classes in a fun, friendly, supportive and stress-free environment.

Complete beginners are welcome. You don’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience whatsoever. You don’t have to be clever, fast or funny either! Also good for writers, actors and comedians looking to widen their skills and boost their confidence.

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 & sketches.

Over a course of 2 days you’ll progress as a team while learning core improvisation skills like Spontaneity, Listening, YesAnd, Character, Scenes, Story and having fun with improvisation.

Venue: Midlands Arts Centre, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH.
Dates:  May 2nd/3rd
Cost: £75 (£69 concessions)
