Workshop with Impromptu Shakespeare

Learn how to use style, character and language improvisation techniques to create the scenes Shakespeare never wrote

8th Jul
11am – 4pm | £35 (£30 conc.)

Get to grips with Shakespeare in a very different way – by making it up. Learn how to improvise using style, character and language techniques to create the scenes Shakespeare never wrote. Improvisers from the critically-acclaimed Impromptu Shakespeare will guide you using specially developed games and exercises to refine your Shakespearean improv skills.

Expect to improve your verbal dexterity, emotional range, naturalness and presence, as well as your grasp of iambic pentameter and rich metaphor – useful for actors performing Shakespeare’s works, and improvisers performing in his style. You’ll experience gravitas and beauty, gentle irreverence and hilarity. Some previous improvisation or acting training or experience preferred.
