Improvaganza by Impro Melbourne

IMPROVAGANZA  is an extravaganza of improvisation that inspires creativity and demonstrates theatre making through improvisation. Built around the fundamental skills of improvisation – acceptance, spontaneity and storytelling – IMPROVAGANZA demonstrates and explains how improvisation works. There are practical tips students can apply immediately to their own improvisational work, including Theatresports™ and other performance areas.

Over the past 12 years with RAV, IMPROVAGANZA has become a ‘must have’ addition for teachers with clear curriculum links, as well as a tool to take back into the classroom in the development of interpersonal skills, personal learning and communication.

It is also an important tool for all the schools interested in engaging in Impro Melbourne's Theatresports™ Schools Challenge which is run annually.

IMPROVAGANZA opens with an entertaining illustration of basic impro terminology so that students and teachers develop a shared terminology and understanding. Students can see these skills in action as the improvisers create spontaneous scenes using audience suggestions, their own crazy ideas...and volunteers!

To further enrich the experience, you can add a 60 or 90 minute Drama Improvisation Workshop for Years 5-10 or our specific VCE Drama focused workshops for Years 11 and 12.

Victorian Curriculum Links: The Arts, Languages, The Humanities – History, Civics and Citizenship

Capabilities: Personal and Social, Ethical

Content warning: Content is improvised and care is taken to acknowledge school's needs in terms of themes, language and student involvement

This workshop will also be available at a reduced price for regional venues as part of Impro Melbourne's On the Road tour in Term 1 2020.
