Improvaganza (The Show) - 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. These are practical tips students can apply immediately to their own improvisational work, and other performance areas.

Over the past 8 years with Regional Arts Victoria, 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.

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 workshop for Years 11 and 12.
