Improv & Physicality with Caitlin Campbell

Improv & Physicality with Caitlin Campbell

Saturday April 6th, Digbeth, Birmingham.  10am to 5pm.  Just £50

An improv scene doesn’t start with the first line; in fact it doesn’t even need to have a first line. Improvisers can tell a whole story to their audience without ever opening their mouths.

In this course we’ll explore how space, mime and gesture can bring richness and authenticity to improvised scenes. Unlocking these worlds will give improvisers new tools for play and comedy, but also a greater capacity to create profundity and poignancy in their work.

Combining exercises inspired by the pedagogy of L’Ecole Internationale Jacques Lecoq and over a decade of teaching and performing improvised theatre shows, Caitlin’s workshop will have her usual focus on listening, detail, and having outrageous amounts of fun.
