This is a fun, creative 10-week course that covers the basics of improvisation all taught in an inclusive, relaxed environment. If you want to learn how to perform by just using your imagination with no script or no safety net, then this is the course for you. You will learn the skills and techniques required to sustain a story with sub-plots and integrate a set of leading and supporting characters in a single extended improvisation.
Taking place on Tuesday mornings, this course will give those with prior acting experience the opportunity to work on key Irish theatre texts. This course would be of interest to Irish students wishing to learn more about the Irish Theatre canon, or international students travelling or living in Ireland.
