Weekly Improv Drop-In: Starting with Status Thursday 6 January 2022

This week is hosted by 208942

Starting with Status

We’re kicking off the new year by going back to one of the Ur-texts and replicating some of Keith Johnstone’s status exercises from Impro (a book with a typo in the title!*) We’ll find out who our characters are by exploring their relationships to others, and how we can use movement and speech to reinforce and guide our behaviour in scenes.

MissImp’s Weekly Improv Drop-In

We’ve run a weekly drop-in workshop for improvised comedy in Nottingham since 2005! Come and check it out – everyone’s welcome to join the fun.

The perfect intimate opportunity to practice some of our favourite improv games, and stretch out those improvising muscles. Each week features training in a different set of skills, exercises, scenes, or games, facilitated by various members of the Nottingham improv community.

  • 18+, and suitable for all levels of experience, with an emphasis on having a good time and improving everyone’s improvising experience.
  • Safety: we expect our attendees to be either: a) double-vaccinated, or b) in possession of a negative COVID test within 24 hours of this event. The safety of our participants is paramount. Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or cannot meet our safety requirements, especially if you’re experiencing any coronavirus symptoms. 
  • MissImp’s code of conduct for participants applies to this event.

Hi There!

During the coronavirus outbreak, MissImp has continued to offer entirely free online activities for our community, including commissioning an ongoing series of paid virtual drop-ins from improvisers around the world, fortnightly online Gorilla Burger shows and more. If you’d like to help us keep these activities going and keep our lights on we’d be immensely grateful. Together, we can get through this.
