Leave laptops, phones and emails behind and step into the fast-paced, imaginative world of Improvisation.
In this acting-based team-building experience, your team will work together to create original theatrical scenarios without any planning. After getting to know your group, we’ll kick-off by building the core skills that allow creative ideas to flourish. Through a series of acting games and exercises involving word-play, body language and group storytelling, your team will be put through their creative paces and enjoy bonding on an entirely new level.
Improvisation requires being 100% present in the moment. The practice requires heightened listening skills, efficiency, trust and vulnerability, innovative thinking, fast-paced decision-making and a positive attitude – all skills with direct relevance for the workplace.
The ideal group size for this experience is between 6 and 30 people. For larger groups, we generally run concurrent sessions followed by a group meet-up towards the end of the workshop. Improvisation requires mental and physical focus and, while we tailor programmes to suit, an ideal length of time for this particular activity is between 2 and 4 hours.
Workshops are led by professional acting coaches from the industry. City Academy works with over 50 partner venues in London and can also travel to you – wherever you are in the UK or globally. No planning is required in advance and with a number of tutors trained and ready to play, we should be able to deliver this on any date of your choosing.
