Scene Work

with Brenna Dixon

“The course was clearly designed to build upon the skills we had learnt in the previous week/s, which made for a natural and clear progression”

Scene Work is designed to advance your skills from simple narratives in scenes and games into more complex and open scenes. Create funny, moving and satisfying scenes by understanding the key principles of identiyfing the story and whose scene it is, how to advance and when to end. Learn to create a compelling platform and fearlessly add a tilt. Learn to heighten and explore, answer the promise of the platform and use reincorporation.

The course is designed to challenge improvisers to create scenes without relying on suggestions, games or gimmicks. To focus completely on what’s happening and who they are with as the tools to develop a scene. These skills are important building blocks of long-form work. 

Prerequisites: Impro Melbourne’s Spontaneity and Narrative Technique courses or equivalent impro experience as determined by the Artistic Director.
