Workshops for short-form improv

EGTG has announced the return of The Improbables, its highly successful Improv troupe, with a 10-week introductory course into short-form improvisation.

Workshops will begin on Monday 24 February 2020 and run at 7.30pm on every Monday for ten weeks, finishing on Monday 4 May 2020.

A short time away, in a galaxy very, very close…
Gordon Craig will return to his home venue of Buccleugh Place in an attempt to rescue new friends from the clutches of the vile plague of Dry Mouth with the art of short-form improv…

The course, run by original Improbables member Gordon Craig, will teach the basic principles of short-form improvisation, with each workshop focusing on a different aspect of the artform.

EGTG’s new improv course will cost a mere £10 for the full ten weeks – yes, £1 a week! Craig plans to cover the following aspects of improvisation:

Week 1 – Short form improv: The basics;
Week 2 – Scene structure;
Week 3 – Endowment;
Week 4 – Style / genre;
Week 5 – Gibberish;
Week 6 – Hidden information;
Week 7 – Character work;
Weeks 8, 9 and 10 – Putting everything together.

EGTG told Æ: “As well as promising to be great fun, improvisation can help participants improve their performance skills overall, and help to build their proficiency when speaking both in conversation and publicly.

“Whether you want to perform on stage or are just looking for more confidence when speaking off-the-cuff, The Improbables workshops are for you.”
