Workshop Details

As improvisers we invent stories; by training we are good at that. But in this workshop we will steer away from explicit storytelling. Instead we will focus on defining what really drives a character. We will learn this by practicing scene setups, both in one-character and multi-character situations. Playing in this style is not difficult, but it does take some practice - in this workshop you will learn the tools for such practice. This is a tremendously fun way to play – consider it another tool in your toolkit. It can be applied to both short form and long form, and is not limited to narrative-based styles of improv.

*This is an advanced workshop - participants should have completed a LV3 improv course or equivalent. If unsure, please contact paul@belfastimprov.co.uk

TOM TOLLENAERE has been training and coaching improvisers since 1999. Today, he focuses on 2 key areas: Musical improv, where he teaches improvisers how to improvise songs, and incorporate music and song into improvised performances for both short-form and long-form, and Character-driven narrative, focusing mainly on long-form performances. As a teacher Tom likes to take students away from the ordinary here & now. He is a strong proponent of making bold character choices and a big fan of monologues.

Tom writes extensively about improv theory on his blog tomsimprovpages.wordpress.com and has been editing & maintaining ImprovEncylopedia.org, the largest reference site devoted to improv, since 1999.
