Naturalism in Improvisation Weekend
A specialist course for the long bank holiday weekend: come find the fun and the ease of improvising scenes that are so close to yourself, even you may not know if you are improvising or not! Working with realistic, grounded scenes and elements of theatre training, this course will license your natural eccentricity and help you to find the power of behaving naturally onstage. Using simple exercises, you will relax into your natural stage persona, embrace what is already there and extend your playing range.
Guided by Heather Urquhart (The Maydays, Showstopper! the Improvised Musical) and Jules Munns (The Maydays, Impromptu Shakespeare), this course is for improvisers who want to act and actors who want to improvise.

"I enjoyed being challenged and watching myself begin to develop and/or hone skills that I have seen being used onstage, but never known how to emulate."

Skill learnt on this course will include:

Connecting deeply with your partner and the audience
Finding the joy, delight and fun within realistic, grounded situations
Playing close to yourself and using your own opinions and responses in scenes
Playing intimate and tender relationships between friends, lovers and family members
Making tiny adjustments to your body, voice and point of view and seeing how that influences your choice
This course is suitable for those who have taken an improv course or two before (ideally our core skills course!) and are looking to deepen their understanding of improvised theatre and comedy. If you are unsure whether this is the course for you, or have any questions drop us an email on jules@thenurserytheatre.com outlining your improvisation and performance experience.

This course takes place over three days from 10.30am to 5pmat the Nursery training Centre, Capital House, 42 Weston Street, SE1 3QD and costs £145 or £125 if you book a month or more before. We also offer diversity scholarships. Please note that course fees are non-refundable when paid.
