Improvising as a duo is as much fun as it is terrifying. Taking away the backline, the troupe, the comfort of a third player to jump in and save you can be a daunting prospect but it is precisely that absence, the reliance only on your scene partner, that can foster a whole new sense of trust between performers, audience and yourself, taking the improviser to a whole new level of play. 2Prov is about trust, both in your partner and in your ability to control the stage. Plus, it’s a LOT easier to organise jams.
In this intensive advanced course, written and taught by Carlo Ritchie, one half of acclaimed improv duo ‘The Bear Pack’, students will build their confidence in improvising as a duo, building a foundation of trust with their scene partner and honing the skills of two person play.
Extension workshops are open to players who have completed ITS level five or through consultation with Carlo.
It is highly recommended that students enroll with a partner they wish to play with beyond the purposes of this course.
