Ever fancied trying your hand at improvisation, but scared or worried you won't be any good? Perhaps you've tried improv before but would love to develop your skills. Well, if either scenario describes you, then you're in luck - as you can now sign up to join our new eight-week improv course for beginners running at 1 Brewers' Hall Garden, London EC2V 5DX from 13 March 2020.
The course is perfect for complete newbies and those with some experience. We'll be looking at the basics of improvisation (eg. listening and agreeing), learning some essential improv games (think Whose Line is it Anyway?) and also practising a 'long-form' improv format called The Harold. It's a great way to build confidence, develop collaboration skills, and is generally a great tool to take with you whenever you walk on stage. (P.S. It's really helpful for auditions, too!)
If you're keen, you will also be able to put your new skills to the test in a light-hearted showcase at the Bridewell Theatre, 5-7 May 2020.
The course will be run by Jonathan Scott, James Alexander Stone and Chris Warner who are in Sedos' in-house improv team, The Banana Hut Gang.
Dates: every Friday from 13 March-1 May 2020, 7-9pm, 1 Brewers' Hall Garden, London EC2V 5DX. We are asking people to commit to at least six of the eight rehearsals, so that we can all be performance-ready.
Performances: 5-7 May 2020, Bridewell Theatre, Bride Lane, London EC4Y 8EQ
Cost: It is free to take the course but you will need to become a member. You must purchase the workshop seperately, see the Sedos box office for more information.
