This week’s jam: An Improv Storyteller’s Toolkit

This week’s jam is run by Trilly.

The theme of this week’s jam is harnessing and honing our innate gift for storytelling, and looking at ways to do so in the heat of the improvised moment.

We’ll be doing a mix of games and exercises that focus on recognising, continuing, heightening, and advancing aspects of a scene that might turn it into an entertaining, captivating and perhaps even funny story.

In the quest for the long lost enchanted narrative, we will arm and array ourselves with the legendary virtues of acceptance, attentiveness and additive imagination…

On this perilous journey, we will find friend, foe and fate in the common archetypes of classical mythology…

Our adventure will culminate in a furious flourish of scenes spawned from an exercise in mind-reading…

Forget your ‘once-upon-a-times’ and ‘happily-ever-afters’ – the real story is what happens when grand designs meet grave difficulties…

See you there!

Usual place & time:
The Blue Room, TAO Nottingham, Station Street, Nottingham
Thursday 8th March 7.30pm – 9.30pm
