Our supportive space for Improvisation returns! Join a fun group to dive into the world of improvisation together… Learning useful handpicked tools and exploring key rules in improvisation, unleash your creativity and spontaneity and take away helpful techniques and an inspiring experience that leaves you feel energised, while connecting with fellow performers.

Improvisation allows actors to find ‘free spaces within the framework, within the given constraints so that individual creativity can unfold...’ (Roberto Ciulli, director). No surprise that seasoned actors stress the importance of taking improvisation training. Improvisation frees up the performer's mind so as to be more creative with choices and instincts. It's a practical skill to master widely useful for auditions, performances and theatre making. It also proved beneficial to exploring oneself, building confidence and developing creative and social intelligence.
