We Improguisers, best known as the company who performs Cape Townâ€™s best loved and longest running live improv show TheatreSports, will be running two fabulous and comprehensive improvisation workshops, starting on Thursday 6 September 2012, and running once a week for eight weeks.
One course will be Improv for Actors; aimed at taking trained actors through the aspects of improv that develop the skills of spontaneity, team work, characterisation, status, being present and truth, to name a few. The aim will be to get trained actors ready to perform both long and short form improv.
The second course, which will run concurrently, is for everybody. Do your friends and family tell you that you are funny? Was the last time you were on stage your school play, and do you miss it? Did you watch every episode of Whose Line is It Anyway? And think, â€œI can do that!â€ Have you seen TheatreSports and thought, â€œThatâ€™s what I want to do!â€ Are you a web designer, dog walker, gym instructor, radio announcer, or any other kind of somebody with a desire to improvise? Then this course is for you. It is a high impact, fast paced intro to improv that will make you feel fabulous. And, if you show promise, you could be invited to join the current team.
Course facilitators Megan Furniss, Tandi Buchan and Candice Dâ€™Arcy have returned from Improvention, a massive and inspiring Australian Improv festival, with the improv fire burning strong in their hearts and the vision of turning Cape Town into South Africaâ€™s improv capital.
â€œWe need a huge team of talented, committed improvisers to perform in all the formats, styles and shows we want to get going,â€ says improv veteran Megan Furniss. â€œWe were so inspired, and saw so much, and back home we have an audience ready for new and exciting forms of improvâ€.
So, we want you! Contact Megan immediately to secure your place in either course, and to find out the finer details, like costs, times and venues.
