TheMaydays/Nursery Online Improv Elective: “That reminds me of this time”

Description: Monologues, news stories and how to work with complex inspirations
This Intermediate elective runs Wednesday 23rd September 7 - 9.30pm BST.

Intermediate (3/6 months+) 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 practise and specific new skills.

Great scenes are at the heart of great improvisation. So let’s spend some real time on them. Ideal accompaniments to the nursery longform or narrative courses, these classes are deep-dives into particular areas of scenework. They are also great workouts for intermediate or experienced players. Our expert teachers will give you simple, usable tools that can be employed in a wide variety of improvisation contexts. Students will work in detail on a single aspect of their scenes, receive feedback and, most importantly, get time to play, both in break out rooms and in front of the class.

Inspired by shows such as the Armando, Tonight’s Top Story and Asscat, this class will look at how to tell true stories and then play scenes inspired by them. You will learn to enjoy the details and the people rather than just go for the gag. You will listen in order to be inspired and then play scenes which are respectful and delightful at the same time, getting to the heart of the story without just replaying it.
