Say What? Improv Workshops?

  • DW2, Jack Mann Auditorium 53 Solway Avenue Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

Have you ever been lost for words when you watch someone improvising? Have you been dumbfounded when someone has talked about blocking, barbecue scenes, magic pockets or the curve of absurdity? Do you want to make people laugh or cry (or at least stop twiddling their thumbs) when you perform? Then this series of workshops is for you!

On each Monday night of the university lecture break DramaSoc's very own improv group, Say What, is running a series of workshops in DW2 designed to help you understand the lingo of improv and to help you grow as an improviser. It's fun, educational, and best of all it's free!



April 9th: Say WHEN?

In the final week we will be finishing up by looking at the structure of scenes to help you tell a great story. In this workshop we will also be looking at genre to help you master that pesky genre rollercoaster game.
