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. Please note that the Nursery who ticket these events cannot refund tickets after purchase. The minimum age for all Nursery classes is 18. Please also note that classes start on time and if you are more than 30 minutes late without letting us know, you may not be able to join the class, as you will have missed warmups.

Category: Classes[7:30pm] The Nursery/Maydays Summer Intensive: Improvised Shakespeare
Description:
Learn to improvise Shakespeare in-depth 5 evenings in a row with the same teacher and group. Just like our courses but jam-packed into one week! This intensive runs every evening from Monday 24th August to Friday 28th August, 7 pm-9.30 pm. William Shakespeare: the bard, England’s national poet, the world’s greatest dramatist. Untouchable, inimitable… unimprovisable, right? Surely you can’t just ‘make up’ Shakespeare? You absolutely can and it’s beautiful and hilarious in equal measure. Join us on this six-week course where you will achieve the impossible by improvising prose, poetry, insults, soliloquies, asides, sonnets, maybe even a play within a play, and more, in the style of Shakespeare. We will delve into the real works for inspiration, but not so much we get lost in it. Using a range of techniques and games, a mixture of short and longform improvisation, and a touch of parody, we’ll have Shakespeare’s quill putting words straight into our mouths. Exploring the range of Shakespeare’s genres and themes – comedic, tragic, historic, and the simply weird; we’ll become improvised royals and nobles, fools, witches, ‘rude mechanicals’, unrequited lovers, witty youths, warriors and fairies. Who is it for? If you’re interested in making up Shakespeare-style scenes and have about a year of improvisation experience, then you! No previous study or performance of Shakespeare is necessary.
