Improvisation is an art form that brings you closer to yourself as it elicits freedom of creative expression. It takes you out of your every day routine and imparts crucial life skills. It develops self-awareness by liberating your mind and body from past conditioning and bringing you into the present. Improvisation is the most fun way to create, discover and express your self.
The Art of Improvisation – the theatre of adventure
The Art of Improvisation is a ten-week course that teaches basic improv skills and performance technique. Learn the skills that are the most valuable tools any actor, writer, comedian or any person can possess. You don't have to be a performer to do this course. Awaken the creative artist within and discover that to improvise is to free yourself.
The Art of Improvisation develops narrative and story telling ability, physical awareness, spontaneity, detachment, focus, listening, communication, group skills and much more.
There are three courses a year with numbers strictly limited for the Monday evening workshops so book now to avoid disappointment. This is also the first step if you wish to join the Covert Theatre.
