Are you Awake? Student Edition

with Katherine Weaver

“Are you awake?”

Prerequisites: Impro Melbourne’s completion of our core courses (SpontaneityNarrative TechniqueCharacter Scene Work), or equivalent impro experience as determined by the Artistic Director. 

This workshop will first introduce ways to get into emotional and juicy conversations that only happen in the middle of the night. Using mantras, true stories and characters to realistically portray the issues that arise. In the second session, we will do the scenes and record them as an audio file. These scenes will then be edited and mixed with sound and released on the impro Melbourne podcast channel as 'Are you Awake' the student edition.   

 This podcast and workshop contain adult themes. 

You can listen to previous episodes of the podcast here 

Join us on a late-night journey into the conversations that can only be heard in the middle of the night, when the lights are off and your guard is down.

Each episode features two Impro Melbourne actors exploring those connections as the pair are given a photo and location to inspire their late-night conversation.

We hope to make you laugh, cry, and reflect on your experiences with this improvised podcast.
