About the Event

Improv, the art of creating things on the spot, we shall be covering the fundamentals of the theatrical aspect of it along with it's connection with comedy. If you have seen Kaneez Surka's shows or 'Who’s line is it anyway?' then you probably have already having a brief idea about it, if you haven't, no need to worry.


In level 1 you will be encouraged to explore your creativity, build your confidence and have fun whilst developing the basic skills of improvisation.


No previous acting or improv or comedy experience is required to participate.


Improv Fundamentals focuses on the basic tenets of scenic improvisation.


Specific skills and topics covered:

-"Yes, and"

-Listening

-Creating characters

- Supporting your scene partner

-Object /Environment work (miming)

-Story Arcs and Narrative Structure

-Creating Comedy based on the Game of the scene methodology based on UCB's philosophy on which most sketch groups like Key&Peele, Monty Python etc are based. 

-Some short and long-form improvisation techniques


Each session shall be structured around one or two of the aspects where we shall be covering some theory and do exercises with other participants as well as play scenes, it's a journey of self discovery along with some side coaching and feedback from the facilitator.


If you are thinking to improve your acting, be more confident, be more mindful over yourself, be a more spontaneous comedian, be an inclusive leader, want to learn story building/storytelling or to be a better person in general, this might as well be a good fit for you.


We shall also be covering the levels ahead through more such upcoming workshops as well as after level one you get to be part of our core community and perform with the GCC squad in the future including shows/improv festivals.
