Improvisation Workshop

with Richard Vranch

Friday 13 June, 10 - 6pm, London (venue tbc).
Deadline: Tuesday 27 May
[If you are interested and the deadline has passed, please email Felicity on admin@tamasha.org.uk who will be able to let you know if any places are still available.]

Improvisation is widely used to devise material and develop characters, and for group auditions. Improvised performances are now more popular than ever. This day of teamwork, fun and games is suitable for anyone who wants to jump away from the script and see where it takes them. It will be a compact introduction for those who don't have much experience of impro, and a valuable workout for those who do. Working together as a team, you will use the techniques of improvisation to make stories and scenes out of nothing but each other.
Just bring clothes you can move about in, and an open mind.

Richard Vranch works as an improviser, actor, writer and comedian. He has improvised at the London Comedy Store every week since 1986, as well as annual visits to Shakespeare's Globe and Regent's Park Open Air theatre. Richard has toured the world in Stephen Frost's Impro Allstars in Paul Merton's Impro Chums. He has given workshops to a wide range of groups including actors, corporate / health sector professionals, and medical journalists. He has a comedy/science hula-hoop act called Dr Hula and he has presented science programmes on TV. He co-devised Tamasha's Ryman and the Sheikh with Sudha, Kristine and the cast. He was the bloke doing the music on the British TV series "Whose Line is it Anyway?"

This is open to artists from all cultural backgrounds.
