So often in life, we’re busy fixing things. Taking care. Making things better. In improv, we need to do the opposite, but that can be difficult when it’s so different to what we normally do.
In this workshop, we’ll work on making things worse (in the most supportive way!) and see how heightening can improve our scenes. Time to increase the fun and fork things up!
This workshop will be taught by Nikki and Pippa – two of the best improvisers on the Nottingham scene! Both have years of experience across multiple teams, but first met when they auditioned for The Vortex, where they have mastered the advanced Harold format. Nikki has performed with the Nottingham Improv Comedy Experience (NICE) and you can regularly see her performing musical improv with Rhymes Against Humanity. Pippa is in a two-person improv team (Rosie & Pippa) and can be seen taking their first sketch show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019. Both have performed at the Hoopla Improv Marathon in April 2019!
This is the fourth all-female improv workshop put on by MissImp!
These workshops led by some of the most exciting female improvisers from our Nottingham community and beyond, and will focus 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!
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 us.
