“I loved the course a lot and had a fun time each week!”
In Character, you will learn how to develop a character through exploration of your body, voice, emotions, attitudes and status. We will explore how your character relates to the other characters and how they react within the context of the situation.How characters navigate their wants, needs, point of view, morality and relationships trigger the audience’s perception and fuel the emotional engine of the story. Make stories pop with interesting and powerful character choices.
- What should I wear? Comfortable clothing to move freely.
- What should I bring? A water bottle and a notebook to capture thoughts, if you wish.
- What happens in the class? Classes start with warm-up games, then move into impro exercises specifically chosen to build your skills. All the games and exercises are done either together by the whole class in a circle, or in small groups or pairs.
- How do your teachers work? Impro Melbourne’s dynamic faculty of teachers has a wide range of experience, creativity and expertise. All our teachers are trained in our course objectives; however, they will approach the work with their own individual style. This may mean exercises and approaches could vary between teachers, but the course objectives are consistent.
- What is expected of students? We expect all students to treat each other with full respect and acceptance regardless of gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, race or ability. Impro Melbourne reserves the right to remove and/or exclude from workshops any participants for behaviour that may interfere with the safe, inclusive and constructive workshop environment.
