“Tell the truth”, said Del Close, “they’ll never believe you.”
Like many art forms, improv sits at the boundary of truth and fiction, using a little from each. As an improviser, both are available to us, and our audiences might never know which is which. What fun.
In this full-day class, you will explore how to play with the boundaries between truth and fiction in improvisation, using elements of your own life in scenes and daring the audience to disbelieve you. Taking inspiration from the Armando and ASSSSCAT 3000, Forum and Playback Theatre, this course will encourage you both to create characters that seem like reality and tell the most outlandish truths.
(There will be no obligation to reveal anything you don’t want to or ever to tell us what is true.)
Our one-day weekend classes go deep into specific areas of improvisation. Aimed at improvisers with a few years of regular experience, the skills we work on will feed into your regular improvisation and help you expand the range and flexibility of your play. These classes are normally taught by Heather and Jules together.
