The TBC Improv Workshops - Introduction to Long-Form Improv (103)
The Tron Tavern | Wednesday 05 April 2017 - 24 May 2017 (weekly) | 7:00pm-9:30pm
While most people familiar in anyway with improv will recognise the short-form style of improv comedy expertly displayed on shows such as "Whose Line is it Anyway?". There is, however, another style beloved around the world by performers and audiences alike: Long-Form!
This 8-week comprehensive course introduces and teaches the skills of long-form improv from beginning to performance level; looking at different structures for long-form shows and how a group can take a s ingle word suggestion and create a whole piece of theatre from it.
This course is ideally aimed at: those with some basic improv training and wishing to expand further; those who wish to specialise in long-form improv; performers with short-form background/experience wishing to become more relaxed and familiar with long-form improv.
In addition, there will be a performance opportunity at the end of this course which students are encouraged (but not required) to try. (Note: the details of the performance will vary depending on when/where the course is run).
