  Category: Other[All day event] 11th Annual Maydays Improv Retreat
Description:
“This place is amazing – it’s like Hogwarts for improvisers.” How would you like to spend five days staying in a grand old house in the Dorset countryside, taking your choice of improv classes in the company of some of the most lovely and talented people you’ll ever meet? If this sounds good to you, then we invite you to be part of the Maydays Improv Retreat from 19th-23rd September 2018. Whether you’re new to improv, a seasoned veteran, or somewhere in between, you’ll come away from this residential week refreshed, energised and inspired. What is the Improv Retreat? Quite simply, it’s an unforgettable experience. Every September for the last 10 years, The Maydays – one of the most established and experienced improv troupes in the UK – have taken over the stately Osho Leela spiritual centre and transformed it into a unique improv school. Around 60 attendees come from all over the country, and from all kinds of walks of life. Each day these lucky people choose from a taster’s menu of 16 different classes. There are two sessionsbefore lunch and two more in the afternoon, with four class options to pick from for each session. So everyone charts their own course through the day, picking the classes that most appeal to them. In your downtime between classes you can relax in the café, take a well-earned nap in your room, stroll the spectacular grounds, venture deeper into the surrounding countryside, or simply mingle with the other guests and teachers and compare notes on the classes you’ve taken. Then, every evening, you’ll be treated to performances from some world-class improvisers, and you’ll see the techniques you’ve been studying come to life on stage. On the final day, an afternoon showcase gives everyone the option of getting up and performing in front of the entire group – improvising a scene or a song (or both) in a way that they might have found unthinkable just a few days earlier. Then everyone hugs and goes home, counting the days until next year. What you’ll say: ‘What an utterly magical week. How am I going to readjust to life in the real world?’ ‘I feel like I’ve run away and joined the circus.’ ‘Look at all these lovely nutters!’ – Mayday who shall remain nameless, gazing out at the assembled students £555.00 – Book before the 19th August to receive a £50 Early Bird discount Jason Chin Scholarship applicants need to apply before the 1st August, winner announced 1oth August

If you've been to the closed Jam earlier in the month come along and test out your Improv chops in front of a live wonderful supportive audience.

Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Nursery 'Making a scene' Drop in Class (London)
Description:
The best improv classes in London youll never learn so much or laugh so hard At the heart of every performance is the scene, the building block on which all improv shows are created. There is no prescription for creating a successful scene. Some are long, some short, some touching and tender, some daft and knockabout. Each week this class will examine techniques for making great improvised scenes, including approaches to character, space work and mime, game of the scene, narrative techniques, emotion and authenticity. A new tool in your tool box every week, leading to emotionally grounded, rewarding and hilarious scenes which are simple to play! Brilliant stuff. Very useful for improv and for life. Five stars. This class is intended for those who have had at least six months experience of improvisation and want to polish their scene-work skills, perhaps to complement a course you are taking or team you are playing with. Email jules@thenurserytheatre.com with questions, or to discuss if this is the class for you. A very relaxed and non-judgemental atmosphere which allowed everyone to learn from each other. Class limited to 14 participants. 15. 7-10pm. Book below to guarantee a place and to accumulate loyalty stamps. Free class for every six booked online!
