THEATRESPORTS COURSE July 2012
DATES: T.B.C. The course takes place over two consecutive weekends. Participants must be available for both weekends.
TheatresportsTM is a trademarked form of improvisational theatre devised by Canadian director Keith Johnstone. Local writer, director and performer Megan Furniss established the first TheatreSportsTM troupe in Cape Town in 1993. It worked under the banner of Improvision until it was rebranded in 2010 as ImproGuise.
This group has been playing continuously in Cape Town over the last 18 years, with many new improvisers coming through our training programme and joining the team over the years. Many of the city’s top actors, dancers and singers have been part of the team.
It is Short- form Improvisation and is performance based. Through a series of exercises and games, this course will cover the basics of Improvisation and will include How to be spontaneous, saying Yes And, Narrative skills, Character work and status, gibberish, Improvised singing and Genres. TheatreSportsTM workshops encourage listening, concentration and teamwork, to harness the power of “thinking out the box” in order to solve problems and work together and the skills learnt can be used as a powerful tools in both performance and in everyday life!
This course is for anyone who is willing and wants to learn how. No previous experience is necessary; all you will need is comfy clothing, a bottle of water and a sense of humour. Your teachers have 45 years experience between them, so you will either be in very good or very old hands. You must attend both weekends (part 1 and 2) to benefit from the whole experience because the course is divided up into sections, but if for any reason you cannot, the price will stay the same. We will not allow anyone to attend if you cannot attend the first weekend.
