Improvisational theatre, often called improvisation or improv, is the form of theatre, often comedy, in which most or all of what is performed is unplanned or unscripted: created spontaneously by the performers

Nataila is a practicing workshop leader and graduate of Michelle Danner acting studio Los Angeles and the university of Birkbeck London where she studied Drama

Improv has some rules and general points I would like to teach people, for example: always saying yes to everything; delivering specific information at the beginning of the scene to make the work for yourself and your partner easier; focusing on space and body work; or finding different ways to deliver information and more.

Improv and games - 27th of February

Frank Wurzinger

'I am an experienced theatre maker, teacher and performer with a passion for facilitating play. I have extensive industry experience and have toured my own and other people’s shows. I teach clown, devising, improvisation, solo/group performance and storytelling to young people and adults from all walks of life'. "Every human being is a clown but only few have the courage to show it." - Charlie Rivel. Clowns might be simple and truthful or outrageously and joyfully over the top and always play with a sense of pleasure. We are looking of ways of staying optimistic and finding the game in the worst situations. Through a series of movement exercises and games we liberate ourselves from blocks and inhibitions to find the freedom to be ourselves and play with anything. We explore the edge of what is acceptable? How do we individually make people laugh? When does comedy become tragedy?

voice and projection - 12th of March

Gareth Rees-Wells

I have always been interested by the mundane and everyday environment  that surrounded me growing up. The postman, the milkman, the rubbish men, (persons) the waiter, waitress, the cook, the cleaner, the builder, dustmen. I started to look more at myself and how i was communicating with people, who was i what was my group? if any. Often confused, acting and not quite being myself. Having the desire to experience a variety of lives one found he was most comfortable socializing with strangers or being alone in a run down establishment surrounded by strangers. Cafes, pubs, library's.

I used these experiences to help me to loosen the anxiety of performance in acting and be human.
