Live a little. Learn a little. Laugh a lot!
It doesn’t matter what stage you’re at on your improv journey. This bespoke 2-Day intensive in staging and performing improvisational theatre is open to everyone and anything. The WEEKEND WORKSHOP is yours for the taking, because it’s yours in the making…
PLEASE NOTE: No previous experience of any kind is required. However, as this is not an ‘introduction to improv / performance / theatre’ class, we strongly recommend that participants be somewhat experienced and confident performers.
On the Saturday morning, participants will be invited to anonymously set objectives and aspirations for the weekend. This will be made possible by the highly technical process of writing things on post-it notes and sticking them on a wall. Leaving that to one side, we will turn our attention to discovering each other through play in the Grand Stretch philosophy and style – dispelling fears and establishing a safe and supportive space in which we can embrace the pleasure in risk and the pay off of failure.
During the break, Darren will turn his attention back to post-it wall, and will use it to inform a trajectory for the weekend. This plan will utilise specific improvisation exercises, theatre games and scene work to target the needs and objectives outlined by the group.
It’s (quite literally) all to play for!
