Art Imitating Life, with Duncan
Have you ever had a friend present you with a “hypothetical” situation that is so filled with specific “hypothetical” detail that you start to think that this “hypothetical” situation is definitely happening? What a shame for your friend but what an enviable skill for improv!
Details are the lifeblood of an improv scene. People will bend over backwards trying to think of a funny or clever or original idea whilst completely ignoring the limitless library of lived experiences they already hold. What better way to bring our scenes to life than to use details from life itself! We are story tellers. We use lies to tell the truth and the best lies contain an element of truth.
This week we will play like a child but with the knowledge and experiences of an adult. We’ll be encouraging you to use the most original, most useful and most important thing in improv. Yourself.
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.
- Please note that Malt Cross’ elevator is BACK!, so we have lift access to the lower floor where our workshop space is once more.
- Safety: Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or cannot meet our safety requirements, especially if you’re experiencing any coronavirus symptoms.
