In this series of workshops we will be looking at the actors friend – long form improvisation.
Long form improv explores narrative and character and is not based on game handles. This allows actors the freedom to take time in developing character relationships and plot points. Long forms usually involve numerous scenes that at first seem to be unrelated but as the improv advances the scene’s narrative points merge. There are an infinite number of ways to perform a long form and no limits to the possibilities for structure or theme.
These workshops will be fun, challenging and will help your confidence and technique on stage and in auditions.
