About The Event
What is improv?
Improvisation, often called improv or impro, is a form of theatre, often comedic, made up on the spot by the performers. You don’t need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience to attend this session. You don’t have to be clever, fast or funny either.
What will be doing?
We’ll be playing fun and friendly warm-ups, followed by exercises to explore core improv skills such as listening, making, accepting and building on offers, and celebrating failure.
Improv can help you feel more confident standing in front of an audience without a script, cope more easily when things don’t go as expected and collaborate with others with greater success.
You don't need any special equipment to improvise, but you'll be moving around a bit so it might be best to bring a drink.
Where will we meet?
By Christchurch Bridge, Reading, on the Caversham side.
When will we meet?
I'll be there from 12.30pm to welcome anyone who would like to get there early, so we can have a chat and I can answer any questions. I always find it easier to get to events early when there are fewer people to meet. Around 1pm we'll find a space where we can play.
What happens if it rains?
Unless there's a health and safety risk from thunder and lightning, the show must go on!
