Hot off the press! Our students just couldn't get enough of our workshops this year, so we've added an exclusive new one for some end of the year fun!
Impro Melbourne's recent season of "Smells Like A Song" saw our actors bursting into song the moment an audience member tossed a rose on to stage calling, "Smells Like A Song!"
Whatever the moment that inspired the audience call was now the inspiration for the song. No waiting. No hedging. Go. It's an act of boldness and trust.
In "Songprov from the Gut," we'll explore those trigger moments. How to trust the simplicity of the scene's discoveries as all you need for your song and how to be bold and explore the emotional promise of that simplicity.
We'll explore theme, metaphor and melodic layering and create quite complex duets from a few simple things.
No singing experience is necessary.
Time: 11am - 5pm
