What will it cover?
This fun and information rich course will: provide you with a more grounded and holistic approach to long form improvisation than is taught elsewhere; introduce and experiment with the core principles of the various styles of long form improvisation (many of which aren’t taught in Sydney); identify and help you unlearn incorrect techniques that you may have learnt in other workshops/courses and that are most likely holding you back; and will spend a lot of time improvising and perfecting scene work. Whatever your skill level or experience, you will definitely learn something, and you’ll have a lot of fun in the process. There will also be an opportunity to form an ongoing performance troupe once the course is completed.
The class size will be small, and the course will be adapted to the skill levels of the participants. A minimum level of actor improvisation training or impro/improv experience is required, roughly equivalent to the first level of Impro Australia’s long form impro course (so go do that now, and tell them I sent you!). This course does not replace or compete with Impro Australia’s long form impro courses, but dives deeper into long form improv techniques, including those not regularly taught in Australia, and Richard’s own long form philosophy.
