All of the ITs Faculty went to high school, so we know a thing or two! More importantly, all of us work in high schools in various improv and theatre capacities so we’ve become acutely aware of how to best support teachers in finding innovative ways to approach devising projects, creating characters, analysing texts and more.
The nature of our work gives us insight beyond improvisation and into movement, mime and even crept writing.
We’ve recently added Ravenna Gregory to the Faculty in an advisory capacity. Ravenna volunteers with ITs to help us refine our schools products and fine tune how we best serve the teachers of New South Wales. An twenty-year veteran of drama teaching working both in the UK and Australia, Ravenna is an experienced HSC marker and is current the Head of Drama at Cranbrook, following the same role at The Scots College.
Improv Theatre Sydney also understands the importance of improv beyond theatre programs – we believe strongly that improv facilitates more creative environments, quicker thinking people and better learners. There is academic evidence to support us. So if you’re in the humanities or IT department and looking for a new way to engage your students, we also have a way to help you.
From 2-hour workshops, 2-day seminars to 6-month continued programs, ITs can design a module to cater to your program’s specific needs. Contact us below to let us know how we can best support you and your students.
