Release your inner-whatever you want. Find easy ways to access free flow of thought, trust and hone your story-telling intuition and do it all in a cozy environment, creating a core ensemble. We work with the basics of improv lord Viola Spolin’s concepts to get comfortable with the group mind. This class is great for people just starting off with improv or improvisers and actors who want to break habits and get back to simple, basic fun.
Our next term starts Mar 23, 2020.
There is a FREE improv taster on 15th of March at ITS (44-54 Botany Rd, Redfern). No registration necessary, just show up at 12pm! There will be another before every term. There is also an opportunity to audition for level two (and skip level one) straight after the taster.
The ITS curriculum is progressive. Level one focuses on simple creativity and group mind; Level two works on creating scenes through strong character choices and relationships; Level three takes your scenework and puts them on top of strong stagecraft (and is the first level to have a student performance); Level four is a complete performance in the ITS iteration of the Harold, the foundational longform improv that has it all; Level five uses all previous levels, works on different longform styles and explores formats and ways of playing. There are extension levels that work beyond the levels 1 to 5, on particular skills and techniques.
All ITS term improv workshops are eight weeks long, and meet once a week for three hours.
This course is capped at 16 students per class.
Registration is $430 / $399 concession.
