The Nursery/Maydays Online Improv Elective: Second Beats

Description: This experienced elective runs Saturday 24th October, 4 pm - 6.30pm BST/GMT+1

Experienced (18 months+) A class for skilful players, especially those who have finished improv training programmes at their school and are looking to widen their horizons. These classes will make the assumption that you are comfortable performing longform improvisation and will push you.

First scenes are easy, right? Just make up some characters and see what happens. But what happens after? Where do you go in the dreaded ‘middle of the show’? Or the second beat of the Harold? How can you be inspired in a variety of different ways to make clear, interesting choices? This workshop will show you a wide variety of ways to take an idea forward without using the same characters again. You will examine pattern, context, mood status relationships, locations, consequences and more, all to give you the tools to open up and explore ideas and keep the momentum of your show rolling.

Class includes:

What to look for in a scene and how to initiate from those ideas
How to initiate to inspire your partner
Looking for variety in a set
