7:00pm Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Maydays Longform Performance Improvisation Comedy Course
Description:
Level 2 of the Maydays longform improvised comedy courses In this Level 2 performance longform improvisation course, the emphasis remains away from shortform games and towards a more fluid and versatile kind of improvised comedy and theatre, just like the Maydays perform themselves. We teach you techniques to create whole shows from a simple one-word suggestion, a monologue, or a newspaper article. You’ll learn how to create longer, more subtle and detailed scenes and explore a much wider range of improv possibilities. We also offer you the freedom to create your own new forms with the guidance of experienced members of The Maydays. The course culminates in a performance showcase for friends and family on 4th June at The Maydays Studio. £175.00 – Book before 11th March for a 15% Early Bird Discount “Great fun, freedom, a chance to release…I also found it hard which was good, I want more and more challenges like this. Loved it!”

Description:
What is it? An afternoon of improvisation fun! Working on the skills at the heart of improvisation, such as listening, making offers and committing to your choices, each week you will go a little further into improvisation, meeting new people and working with different teachers. Every class is stand alone, so you can come along to one, or be there every week! Who is it for? The drop-in is a wide ability class, so everyone is welcome! It is ideal for people trying improvisation for the first time, or more experienced players who want to work on core skills. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental and you will find yourself doing things you never thought you could. What will I get out of it? Each week you will become more confident and relaxed onstage, taking more risks and feeling more creative and liberated. You will learn the attitudes and ideas that make improvisation work. You will also find these things translating into your everyday life. You will be more confident with people, more creative in your work and better able to respond to stress. What have previous students said? A great place to spend a fun Saturday afternoon with a great bunch of people and learn improv from some of the best teachers in the country. A very relaxed and non-judgemental atmosphere which allowed everyone to learn from each other. Lots of fun! You can secure your place by clicking here to book in advance online, or drop in on the day*. Class is capped at 14, and we cannot guarantee a place if you do not book in advance.
