We will meet online to warm up our bodies and minds and experiment with original games and formats before improvising long-form stories.
After years of practice, we abolished levels in our impro classes. Improvisation isn't a linear process, so why should it be taught linearly? Moreover, levels say nothing about an individual's capacity to work with others, and people can learn a lot from each other regardless of their history. What is required to take our classes is not experience but courage, consideration and curiosity. We've replaced levels with three approaches, open to everyone:
You will find aspects of those approaches in everything we do, but each learning event will emphasise one or the other.
Your teacher, Remy Bertrand, is in the small club of improvisation facilitators with more than 10,000 hours of teaching experience. Currently based in London, UK, he has been teaching improvisation internationally since 2006 with imprology, in Drama Schools, universities, charities and other institutions. He has directed several large scale improvised performances with Zootrophic, a multi-discipline ensemble, co-directed improvised short films with Peter Snowdon and is hosting Love Explosion, an improvised open-stage show currently online.
Remy has trained most recently with John Write (Impro, Clown) Kate Hilder and Sten Rudstrom (Action Theatre) Mary Overlie (Six Viewpoints), Lee Simpson (Open Space, Impro), Lucy Hopkins (Clown) and Punch Drunk (Immersive Theatre).
He has learned most from his students and teaches improvisation as a transformational process focusing on pleasure, curiosity and courage.
'Attending this workshop was truly transformative. It ignited a fire within me to break through the barriers that have been hindering my growth and embrace a more authentic version of myself. Remy's unwavering encouragement, genuine honesty, and profound insights created a nurturing and empowering space where I could fully embrace my true self. Beyond just an improv workshop, it was a journey towards conquering our fears and limitations, and unlocking our fullest potential.' Sarah Kent artist,critic, performer
