How does Improv help in my life or work?
Improv will help you to understand what people want and how they want it. Basically, it will show you how to satisfy any kind of audience. To do that, we will work step by step on how to overcome your fear of improv so you can be quicker on your feet and have fun on stage.

With a focus on storytelling, the purpose of this course is to make the students proficient in the art of improvising short and long scenes within the format of their choice.

Every lesson will be structured in three parts :

  • A brief introduction of the concepts that will be studied and what will be expected of the students in each exercise.
  • Warm-Up
  • Exercises – most of which will be systematically debriefed.
The course is essentially focused on Keith Johnstone style of improv and on understanding the codes of genres. The genres that will be explored include: action, drama, romantic comedy, spy movie, absurd theatre, Tennessee Williams, Shakespeare, etc. It will also give the students some storytelling tools like the hero’s journey or the three-act structure.

Through the study of the Johnstone system, you will be able to understand how to create a story and keep the interest for the audience. Also, you will get to prepare for a full directed show called the Maestro. By the end of the course, the improvisers will be completely able to play a Maestro in front of an audience which will be the final result of the course.
