  • "I always felt alive when going home after the class -- even if I came there following a long day at work."

    Mihnea
  • "I think it's great that the students get to watch the Crea shows for free, get involved in Powerball and perform a graduation show. I am now hooked on improv. The only downside is that "normal" life seems a bit dull!"

  • Improvisation Level 3 - Moving On
    Saturday
    Apr 1 (Started)
    In this class, we move away from the safety of preset games into the freeing world of open scenes. We find out how to create, steer and end scenes with and without structure. Using characters to drive the scene and to go beyond the scene to create a story, a theme or a world (this is what we call longform).
    You must have taken Levels 1 and 2 with easylaughs to take Level 3.

  • Masterclass: The Harold
    Thursday
    Apr 6 (Started)
    Once improvisers move beyond the world of short-form games they hear about a format known as The Harold. Probably the most widely used of all longforms, it has its roots in Chicago improv in the 60s. What is it and why is it so popular? In this advanced class we will take a deep dive into the Harold. We will explore its many variations and along the way we will develop a mastery of some techniques useful for all longform players. Students will tune in to the group mind of their team, and experience for themselves what happens when "Harold appears"... exciting!
    Note: This class is aimed at advanced improvisers, if you're not sure whether that means you please contact Ben to discuss.
    The class runs over 7 weeks, weeks 5 and 6 will run for 3 hours to get more in-depth. Week 4 will be on Monday (Apr 24th) to avoid Kingsday.
    Maximum 10 participants in this class!
    Day and time:
    Thursday 20.00 - 22.00
    Dates:
    Apr 6 - May 18 (7 weeks)
