Description:
A five day intensive deep dive into online longform improvisation Study how longform improv can work online as it’s own art form in-depth 5 evenings in a row with the same teacher and group. Just like our courses but jam-packed into one week! Designed for experienced players (with a minimum of eighteen months experience), these classes will examine how online longform is becoming its own art form. Players will learn to work with the technology and use the international nature of online improv to create something based in offline improv, but joyfully innovative. These courses will be based on our ongoing R&D into online improv and will examine: – Playing in different locations and styles, all with a fixed camera – Using theme, thesis and callbacks to create natural, unpressurised structure – Creating group games and scenes using, rather than ignoring the lag – Clearly and concisely editing, linking and returning to scenes

Category: Classes[7:30pm] The Maydays / Nursery Online Improv Drop-In
Description:
The Maydays / Nursery Online Improv Drop-In PLEASE CHECK THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE CORRECT DATE FROM THE DROP DOWN BOX WHEN FOLLOWING THE BOOKING LINK AS THERE ARE NO REFUNDS. In response to the unprecedented situation with the Coronavirus, the Nursery and the Maydays are moving their joint improvisation classes online with immediate effect. We believe improvisation is a very useful way to connect with people and can help us to keep perspective and balance in these challenging and confusing times. We want to continue offering people this, even if the medium is slightly changed. These online drop-in classes are slightly shorter and cheaper than our normal drop-in classes, but still offer the same combination of pair and group work, and are still open to both beginners and more experienced improvisers. Initially, they were running at the normal times of 7 pm Wednesday, 8 pm Thursday and 1 pm Saturday, but this has already proved hugely popular with online sessions already selling out, so we’ve now added lots more! When? Monday to Friday – 7.30 pm-9.30 pm every evening Saturdays & Sundays 1 pm-3 pm & 3.30 pm-5.30 pm Where? ONLINE ZOOM ROOM Who is it for? The drop-in is a wide ability class but is specifically aimed at newer improvisers or more experienced players who want to work on core skills. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental. Who is teaching it? For variety, the teacher will change every week. All teachers are either from The Maydays or The Nursery Theatre and are highly experienced improvisers and teachers. How much is it? £10+ booking fee per class, bookable in advance How do I join an online class? There is simply a link for you to click, which will be included in your booking summary email once you’ve bought your place. *classes are limited to 12 students and no guarantee is made of a place if you do not book.
