Introduction to Long Form – Mondays 30 Sep to 18 Nov

Short form? Long form? It’s all improv! But making that jump from short form games and scenes to longer work can be daunting.

This is an eight week course introducing you to a variety of styles of long form – genre-based longform, vignettes, monoscenes, Harold, la ronde, soap, and more. We’ll work with exercises that connect the skills of short form with the demands of long form, and at the end of the course there will be an opportunity to perform at WIT’s Improv Lounge using one or more of the forms studied.

Tuesday training spaces sorted!

With Capital E (our Tuesday training home for the last 10 years) now unavailable, the search has been on to find a new place to play on Tuesdays.  And . . . we have.

  • Tuesday 13th of August – no training, instead there’s the launch of the NZ Improv Festival Programme at BATS.  We’re all invited, kick off is at 6.30pm.
  • Tuesday 20th and 27th of August –  6.30pm The Communit Room at Toi Poneke in Able Smith St.
  • From Tuesday 3rd September to November 13 –  6.30pm in the Drama Christi Studio, 75 Taranaki St (building to the right/back of the Wesley Church). This is a dedicated small theatre, which Playback Theatre use as well as the Drama Christi peps. We can’t use it when they’re actually putting on their own shows (hence not available until next month), but it should be a pretty good place for us.
