Life has been restricted, and the rules are ever-changing. Focusing on what we can't do is endlessly frustrating — so we've decided focus on what we can do! After all, rules are the fixings of games! Just like any of our favourite impro games, the COVID-19 pandemic challenged us to follow rules, to identify opportunities within them, and to play on in pursuit of our goals. And so, we've discovered four unique ways to play it safe.
Online Impro Sessions
These impro sessions combines some of our favourite impro games, exercises, scene set-ups and show formats as you've never played them before – putting our Heads Together to explore virtual realities, to tell meaningful and memorable stories, and to create extraordinary experiences for online players on “new normal” platforms like Zoom. Put your game face on!
Outdoor Impro Sessions
These sessions are the ultimate brainstorm. On your marks, at a comfortable 2m distance from your fellow players, get ready to tap into our collective unconscious and let your inhibitions go. Hive Mind is a fast-paced, fun-filled and fluid experience that combines shared focus games and exercises to create supersonic connection. Surrender your agenda to the hive mind. Come and play!
Non-contact Impro Sessions
These sessions are all about making things happen at arm’s length in impro. While we’re all wearing facemasks, avoiding props and incorporating social distancing into how we play, Elbow Room focuses on the bodies and voices in shared spaces, and on creating vivid worlds around vibrant characters.
Spotlight Impro Sessions
These sessions shine a supportive spotlight on stand-alone acts. We introduce the principles of storytelling, play with comedic and dramatic devices, and develop solo performance techniques in our shared creative process as they each develop theatrically infused material and prepare to present it onstage — alone!
