About The Course

This course is an introduction to the world of improvisational theatre (aka improv!). Improv is a form of spontaneous storytelling where one uses suggestions from the audiences to create characters and scenes on the spot without a predetermined script. Open to folks from all walks of life, you don't need to be an actor or performer, just someone with a zeal for telling stories!

This is a "no pressure" series, with the emphasis on laughing and having fun while working piece by piece to put concepts together. The goal is to introduce the language and basics of improvisation to individuals with little to no prior experience. There will be a strong focus on stage time and instructor interaction. The workshop encourages listening, teamwork, positivity, and self-confidence through fun, interactive games, and exercises. Built on the teachings of Viola Spolin and Del Close.

At the end of this course, you will be able to participate in a short-form improv show, online or in-person!

Kaivalya Plays is a Delhi-based theatre group. Their artistic training is grounded in spontaneous improvisation, lying at the intersection of short-form improvisations (for performances and workshop) and applied improvisation (with a focus on mental healthcare, business, education, training). Their improv group CueLess improv was one Delhi's first improv teams and became the training ground for a generation of improv performers and heads of new teams. In late 2018, Kaivalya Plays created Unravel, an interactive theatre production produced under the Refunction theatre grant by the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan. The play brings conversations about mental health to the fore, with the ensemble using improv theatre and audience suggestions to devise the final performance on the spot. Their work has been featured in India Today, The Hindu, Indian Express, Financial Express among others. Since the lockdown, we have moved our improv practice entirely online. In the last few months, they have hosted 15 applied improv workshops, 22 open-space sessions, 5 online improv shows digitally – with a cumulative engagement of 2000+ individuals – and they are constantly figuring out newer formats to make improv more accessible and available.
