Performance Longform

NEEDS UPDATED COPY

What is it?

In this Level 2 performance longform improvisation course, the emphasis remains away from shortform games and towards a more fluid and versatile kind of improvised comedy and theatre, just like the Maydays perform themselves. We teach you techniques to create whole shows from a simple one-word suggestion, a monologue, or a newspaper article.

You’ll learn how to create longer, more subtle and detailed scenes and explore a much wider range of improv possibilities. We also offer you the freedom to create your own new forms with the guidance of experienced members of The Maydays.

The course culminates in a performance showcase, date TBC.

What can I expect?

  • Group warm up activities and ensemble building exercises
  • An introduction to the principles of longform improv (e.g scene work, edits, monologues)
  • Practice of exercises in pairs and in groups
  • An opportunity to create longer improvised pieces (e.g Montages, Armando)

Who is this course suitable for?

  • Adults aged 18 – 100
  • All levels and abilities
  • Those interested in a more fluid and theatrical style of improvisation (less comedy and game based)
  • Actors and writers who wish to have a better understanding of how they can use improvisation in their craft.
