  Online Ten Styles of Scenes Improv Course
Description:
The fundamentals and joys of really great scene work About this Event This Intermediate course runs every Wednesday evening fro 10 weeks from 9th September to 11th November, 7.30 pm-9.30 pm. Intermediate (3/6 months+ regular improv) These classes will be opportunities to add tools to your growing toolbox. Normally these classes will expect players to be confident playing scenes. These classes will provide practice and specific new skills. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. In this new course, you will concentrate on the fundamentals and joys of really great scene work. No frills, no structures, just two people and (sometimes) a suggestion. Over ten weeks, Artistic Director Jules Munns will introduce you to ten styles of scene drawn from different improv traditions, You will look at how they are structured, what powers them and when they might be used. Treating this not as a set of restrictions, but as useful tools and shortcuts to shape your scenes, you will learn how to get the most out of your scene and therefore have the most fun. You will gain an understanding of how you like to play and what you can bring to a scene, as well as expanding your range and flexibility of play by learning how to combine different scene types. This course covers: “Let me tell you something” – Point of view scenes “I thought I was the only one” – Agreement scenes “You know what I like about you?” – Relationship scenes “Will you make me the happiest man?” – Genre/expectation scenes “Wait what?” – Platform/tilt scenes “If you will let me explain” – Frustration scenes “It is as the prophecy foretold!” – Protagonist scenes “Johnson, sit down” – Game/premise scenes “As I was saying” – Multi-part scenes “Everybody get in here” – Groups scenes With a maximum of 12 attendees, Ten Styles of Scenes is taught by Jules Munns. Jules performs with the Maydays and Impromptu Shakespeare, as well as being one-half of Ten Thousand Million Love Stories. He has performed and taught across the world, from Finland to Pakistan, Malawi to Canada. He creates improv blogs and podcasts and performs online for the Nursery.

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?
