Level 1 is a class for everyone who wants to learn improv comedy and no previous experience is required. In this class we teach all basics needed to be able to play improvised comedy.
The focus in this class is to establish a base reality for the scene early on, so that we can later find what is funny about the scene, the “first unusual thing”. We work wth creating characters, to hold a monologue and to draw premises from these monologues and play them. We train the basic skills in improv such as listening, accepting suggestions and adding new information to the scene.
In the end of the semester there is a class show on our theatre PIK where the class will show what they have learned in front of an audience.
