A six-session series of workshops exploring long form improvisation. In this programme, participants will learn skills in creating engaging characters and drama in improvised scenes of 15 minutes to an hour. Long form improvisation techniques are the basis of TV shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation and can help you become a better actor by building character, developing patience, listening and supporting scene mates. Participants are expected to attend all six sessions.
