#var:page_name# cover

For Theatre makers and Performers who want to find new ways of using improvisation as a tool to create work, and all performers who wish to gain confidence in this valuable skill.

How does it work?
The work is based on the ideas of Viola Spolin and Keith Johnstone but also Chris's own experience and a technique known as slopro he has developed. This adds silence and pause to improvisations giving real human and dramatic scenes. At points Chris will side coach improvisations nudging the participants in interesting and rewarding directions.

What do you gain?
The knowledge and confidence to use many different improvisation techniques, some more unusual, as tools for creating realistic and dramatic scenes.
Become confident in the use of improvisation for live comedy and at auditions.
Become more reactive, a better listener and to be more truly in the moment.
