Improv for the Actor - Weekend Course






This improv weekend, led by Acting Coach Simon

Naylor, uses the techniques of Augusto Boal, Uta

Hagen, Stanislavski, Meisner and more to hone the

instinct and listening of the actor. IT IS NOT ABOUT

BEING FUNNY...although you will have a good time!!!


Over a series of games and exercises, the actors will

work towards the goal of finding a comfortable state

of mind in the studio, working with others without

watching or censoring themselves.


As the weekend progresses, the depth and

connection to scenes and scenarios, often without

text, will allow the actor to truly explore the

communications between actors in varying given circumstances.


Experienced actors will have the chance to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and develop their craft, whereas those new to improv will develop their impulses and strengthen their confidence in making choices within the given circumstances.


Simon has taught improvisation for nearly 10 years and has written the Improvisation module for Italia Conti BA (Hons) Course and the International School For Screen Acting, as well as developed several Improv courses across the country. His work takes actors from the very first uncertain steps, breaks through the need to use improv solely for comedy, allows individuals to connect to and trust their instincts, whilst sharing techniques and methods used by actors in rehearsals and character development stages, for stage and screen .
