Cardiff Impro: Weekend Fundamentals of Improv Comedy Class (Wales)
For all walks of life, improv comedy will offer a development in confidence, communication and spontaneity. In-line with the background of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell and Brits such as Eddie Izzard, Paul Merton and Phil Jupitus, the course advocates the use of improvisation for everyone. No need to be an actor or comedian, but you're allowed too. The weekend intensive is led by Nathan Improv.
The class explores spontaneity and its application to create comedy live. We shall explore thoughts on spontaneity, and enhancing the performance of the players through using playfulness in their improvisation. It's rather obvious, but our presentation of fun is engaging to see and clearly is fun for the performers too. Playfulness gets us out of the way of ego, judgement and expectations, which are three elements that kill our improv. We shall search the basics of improvisation: listening, agreement and adding, committing and supporting each other. Improv is an open art form, where we search for freedom and honesty for comedy!
Useful to all, as the fundamentals are applicable to any area of life: business and personal. Get into comedy, spontaneity and theatre that assists people's desires and flexibility.
