£100.00 – £350.00

In his book A Subversive’s Guide to Improvisation, Razowsky throws conventional improv wisdom on its head to give you a unique take on improv scenes. He describes how his life philosophy and improv methodology have evolved on his journey from struggling actor to one of the world’s most respected improv coaches. In this five-day intensive workshop, he shares this work and guides you to becoming a more confident, flexible improviser.

“David Razowsky is funny, smart, inquisitive, and artistically fearless.” – Steve Carell

The challenge for most improvisers is trying to stick to “the rules” and believing “Yes, and” is the magic formula for a successful scene. Characters meander and never find their footing. In an instant, you can travel from a state of fluidity to a mess of frustration and ask yourself, “How did I go wrong?” or “Now what?” 

Informative, inspired, fearless, and whimsical.” – Keegan-Michael Key

This intensive will provide methods and exercises that allow you to connect to your partner and the scene without worrying about the rules. These include:

Getting in Focus
What are you focused on when you begin a scene? What great offers are you missing because you’re building a story instead of connecting to your emotional responses? You will learn how to use the power of their kinesthetic responses to build strong scenes the moment the scene starts. Recognize how your body tells you where to focus your attention, then build a great connection from there.

Stage Dynamics
The dynamics between you and your partner are defined not just by your dialogue, but by where you are on stage when speaking. Each inch of that stage is there to help you better define your relationships, build tension, and make surprising discoveries. Explore the hidden treasures that lie beneath your feet. 

Point of view
Point of view is the bedrock of every relationship. You give your point of view, and your partner gives theirs. Sounds easy. But how often are scenes derailed because the actors don’t hold onto their points of view or mindlessly add unnecessary details that throw the scene off course? Recognizing, maintaining, and evolving a point of view creates confident and exciting scenes.

This eye-opening intensive is back in the UK for the first time since before the pandemic. Book early to avoid disappointment.
