improv is the art of creating scenes and stories out of given suggestions
The Improshrews aim to bring the joy of improvisation to anyone who wants to unleash their creative side.
Our aim is to give participants in our workshops a safe space to improvise and unleash their creative side.
We usually begin with exercises to fire up our imaginations and warm up our voices. We then play games designed to build scenes and flex our story-telling muscles.
Sessions focus on applying the principles of improvisation, which are to:
- embrace the idea
- give ideas a chance
