Improv Jam – Thursday 26 May 2016

This week’s jam: Games With Stories

This week’s improv jam is brought to you by: Nick

Of late we’ve been revisiting games we often only play at Gorilla Burger or Interrobang. This week we’re going to play the games that tell a story. We’ll begin with the simplest versions and get more complicated. The aim is to get a feel for a how a story is structured, and how best to help it on its way.

Improv Jam: Thursday 16th January 2014

This week’s jam: The Sound of Improv

This week’s improv jam is run by: James

SoundzOfMoozikA lot of sounds we hear in our improv jams are usually from our mouth words, and every so often we force ourselves to add sound effects using our mouths on and off stage to help bring our scenes to life more. This Thursday, we’re going to dive back into the world of sound effects and improv!

You will explore different ways of creating sounds such as foley, vocal foley, sound effects, musical sounds and other types to challenge our improv games.

A foley table, mic setup, and sound system will be provided on the night, and also a welcome return to The Mysterious Wheel of Sound Effect Judgement!

Four things will be required…

1. Your lovely selves
2. Your weird and crazy voices
3. Some props that make all kinds of sounds for our foley scenes.
4. A hand to help quickly set it all up

There is even further reading and some videos James linked to previously at The Sound Of Improv.

Unspeakable Acts – Theatre on Bath Salts – Tuesday 19th November 2013

Unspeakable Acts_SQ

Unspeakable Acts – A Deadly Mind Trip into Theatre

We bring you a mutant hybrid of scripted drama and improvised comedy – taking the best / worst of Hollywood and showing you the film that plays out when our improvisers get their kaleidoscopic brains on it.

The players will begin performing a scripted play chosen by the audience; as the show progresses, the script is distorted, violated and abandoned. In its place we will create a new narrative, a squalid perversion of the playwright’s intentions or a beautiful butterfly made of broken dreams.

Challenging, deviant, endlessly inventive and surprising. Oh – and funny. Funny is important too.
