Do you want to be able to pull ideas from an opening and use them to initiate scenes? Do you fancy yourself as having a ‘writer’s brain’ and want to channel that to make your scenes even stronger? Do you want your improv scenes to look like masterful comedy sketches?!
In this two-day workshop, Tamar will introduce you to the core components of premise improv. You’ll learn how to pull an idea from a monologue and use it to initiate an improv scene, how to discover and play game with your scene partner, how to invest in the choices you and your partner make and maximise their potential and how to play believable, committed characters that you could see in a sitcom!
