All-Female Improv Workshops

These workshops are led by some of the most exciting female improvisers from our Nottingham community and beyond, and each focuses on a specific area of improvisation unique to them!

Improv is the art of making up theatre and comedy on the spot, without any scripts or pre-planning. This workshop is for any female-identifying or non-binary individuals who feel they would benefit from or like to experience an all-female classroom environment. This is a safe space to try out new skills and support other women within our improv community.

Our definition of ‘women’ and ‘female’ is inclusive, and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.

We are always looking to encourage people to take on teaching roles within our community – if you would be interested in taking one (or part of) these workshops, please email improvwomen@missimp.co.uk.

The art for these workshops was created by Hélène Dollie!

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.
