DON'T PANIC! - AN INTRO TO IMPRO'

Dip your toes into the fun, interesting and exciting waters of improvisation. Meet others who want to try something new. DON’T PANIC is the introduction Improvisation course that will calm your fears, make you laugh and show you that there’s more to improvisation than what you might expect (it’s easier than you might expect and less pressure than you imagine). This course is great for people who love to be on stage and want to learn the core elements of improvised theatre, or for business people learning to feel comfortable with public speaking, or anyone who wants to have fun while learning to be more spontaneous, creative, playful, open and aware. Follow up this section with the PLATFORM & SPIRIT  section.

SPIRIT

Are you developing a growing appetite for improvisation? The SPIRIT is a course of impro training that you will keep coming back to.  Always something new, the SPIRIT will push your skills and help you develop beyond the level you are currently exploring.  There will be balanced components of games, narrative, character,  theory, practice, play and personal development aiming you towards stage performance. This section of impro training will adapt to the needs of the class and is geared to those who have explored the introduction course, “DON’T PANIC!”

STORYTELLING

This workshop will concentrate on the important element of Story. The Story is everything. As with the SPIRIT section of the Playhouse Impro classes, there will still be games and character but the focus will always direct the attention to engaging the audience into the meat of the improvisation – story. We will explore various techniques and formats that bring the audience to the edge of their seats in laughter, fear, expectation and anticipation.

This section of impro can be explored after the course, “SPIRIT”.

 

INTENSIVE WITH FELIPE ORTIZ: CLOWNING

This workshop is an encounter with an essential part of oneself. The clown that we’re looking for is hidden there where we hide our defects and our fears. Where we hide optimism and the pleasure to fail as well.

In the workshop we´ll explore through games, improvisation and movement, the work of connecting in a special way with the public, the discovery of creativity immersed in failure, the ability to live in the moment and the moment in search of pleasure and play.

IMPROV' FOR MUMS: MUMPROV

If you want to challenge yourself in a new and exciting way, improvisation can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding activities you could pick. It’s a great way to increase self-confidence, improve communication skills and gain insight into your thoughts, feelings and relationships. As a mum, it’s also an opportunity to let your guard down and for you to have a turn to play - in a safe, friendly and supportive environment!
