Dogface Improv Courses

Introduction to Improv - 10 week evening class

7:30 to 9:30pm, Tuesday evenings from 8th October to 10th December 2019
City College, Ipswich Road, Norwich

This course is designed for people who are completely new to improv, have a bit of experience, or haven't improvised for a while and want to get back in the saddle. Anyone who wants to can do this course.

Over the 10 weeks of this course, you will learn the fundamentals of this wonderful artform. You will learn through group exercises, games and scenework and progress towards a grounding in both of the main improv styles - short form ('Whose line is it anyway?' style games) and long form (more character and scene based improv).

There will be an opportunity to perform in a friends and family show at the end of the course. This is optional, but most find they want to perform in the show by the end of the course.

PLEASE NOTE: this is not a casual course, we ask that people only sign up if they can make at least 8 of the 10 classes.

You can pay the full price now, or secure your place with a deposit - the balance needs to be paid before the class start date.


Visiting Coaches

Taking care of the now - Jonathan Pitts

7pm - 10pm, Friday 18th October 2019
TBC - will be central Norwich

Suitable for improvisers with some long form experience.

If you take care of the "now" in any improv scene, the future always shows up as a great scene. If you don't take care of the "now", the future never shows up and the scene spins into quicksand. Using a deeply intuitive scenic process learned from the late Martin DeMatt, one that focuses on listening and responding, the students learn how to take care of the "now" by becoming fully invested in it. They also learn how to let go of worries about where the scene is going and instead learn to understand where the scene is right now.

Finding Strength in Vulnerability - Jonathan Pitts

2pm - 5pm, Saturday 19th October 2019
TBC - will be central Norwich

Suitable for improvisers of any level.

Openness on stage is a choice, a powerful choice that make any scene more grounded, intuitive and vital. In this workshop, the improv students will engage in three different theatre exercises designed to develop and heighten their artistic and scenic openness. After the completion of these three exercises, the improvisers will improvise a 2 person scene with their heightened awareness of the strength of choosing to be open.
