Do Scenes Get Notes: March 2023

It's all there in the title! In this course, you will Do Scenes and then Get Notes. Each week we'll revise some improv tools and techniques, and then get up on our feet and play. Learn by doing the work, implementing notes, and watching each other's work, while also practicing/observing the wider skills of giving & receiving feedback and self-reflection. Participants will receive scene notes within the workshop, and personal coaching across the month - plus a cute notebook to encourage you on your way!

Who is this for? 

This course is suitable for any improvisor with at least an introductory course in improvisation under their belt. It will not cover the basics, but it will aim to meet people where they are and accommodate a range of abilities. If you are not sure of your suitability for this course, get in touch.

Workshops are upstairs in Thistle Hall, top of Cuba Street. There is a lift, street parking (paid until 8pm), and bus routes on Taranaki St, Victoria St, and Ghuznee St.

Participants must be vaccinated, follow all current Covid rules, and adhere to our registration policies.
