Our fourth level builds on the combination of boldness and collaboration of previous levels towards probably the most famous form in improv: the Harold. Based on ‘group games’ and scenes structured together in patterns of three over roughly half an hour, the Harold allows for stories, ideas and characters to be woven together without obligation, a new show emerging from the genius of the group that night. The Harold is a few evenings to learn and a lifetime to master.
AndAlso approaches the Harold not as a problem to be solved or a magic trick to be learned, but as something like group meditation. A version of collective creativity where process is as important as product, the shared and individual experiences supporting and merging into each other. Learning Harold will make you bolder in your own ideas and more flexible to others’. It’s an improv full-body workout and the cumulation of your first year of training.
Please note: We will take a week’s break after week 6 for half-term, no class on Tuesday 24th October.
