Narrative Improv 101

Experience Level: Advanced

Prerequisites: Improv Performance or equivalent

Telling stories is part of our nature. We are surrounded by them in the movies and theatre, in books and comics, in the pubs, around the dinner table, and the list goes on!

When performing narrative improv, we set out on a journey with our team to tell a story. It is simple but not always easy. Although narrative improv uses similar techniques as other styles, it follows different patterns. It, therefore, requires a new perspective and toolset to do effectively.

This workshop is for advanced improvisers who want to learn how to develop engaging stories live on stage without a script. Through interactive exercises and group activities, you will discover new techniques for creating characters, building storylines, and using dialogue to bring your piece to life.

At the end of the course, you will know how to create fascinating and spontaneous stories on the spot. In addition, you will have exercised skills in building engaging worlds, story structure, and how to follow consequential actions to create a narrative, as well as learn the characteristics necessary for a good protagonist (or villain).
