Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Nursery 'Making a Show' Drop in class (London)
Description:
Longform improv is a big sprawling beast. From improvised genre pieces to sketch shows and classic forms like the Armando and Harold, it can be anything which isn’t explicitly directed by someone onstage. It is an infinitely rewarding and complex artform that is growing at an exponential rate in the UK. This drop in class delves into all of these lovely, complex, rich areas. “Everything is relevant, useful and fun!” Great longform means working with your team on a number of different levels – filling scene after scene with interesting, fully-realised characters that care about each other while simultaneously (& largely wordlessly) shaping and directing the flow and structure of the larger show. It’s about being writer and performer in the same moment, about playing as a team and making each other look good. “Brilliant stuff. Very useful for improv and for life. Five stars.” During these classes, you will explore a wide variety of techniques that can be used in any improvised show. These include: Working together as a team The importance of play Building a world – supporting from on and offstage Common structural techniques such as edits, tags and transitions* Applying these skills to classic improv forms such as the Armando and Harold *Don’t worry if this jargon means nothing to you. That’s what the course is for! This class is suitable for those who have done some improv before and are comfortable playing a scene without any game structure. If you are unsure if this class is the right level for you, email jules@thenurserytheatre.com with a summary of your experience.

Category: Classes[7:00pm] The Nursery 'Making a scene' Drop in Class (London)
Description:
“The best improv classes in London – you’ll 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.
