What is improv?”, we hear you ask. Improv’ is short for impro­vi­sa­tion’. Impro­vi­sa­tion is the process by which we cre­ate” (Lyn Pierse). It’s tak­ing what you have on hand, in the moment, and cre­at­ing some­thing with it. It is some­thing we use in our dai­ly lives, at work and leisure, and also on the stage as per­form­ers. Improv is play!These class­es are begin­ner-friend­ly, and no pri­or expe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary — just a will­ing­ness to have a go and have fun! Class­es are suit­able for par­tic­i­pants 16 years and over.

TIME6:30pm-8pm, Mondays

Whilst many peo­ple asso­ciate impro­vi­sa­tion with per­form­ing, it is not just for those who wish to per­form. The skills you learn through prac­tis­ing impro­vi­sa­tion will assist you in every­day life. Active lis­ten­ing, adapt­ing and inno­vat­ing, cre­ative prob­lem-solv­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion, as exam­ples, are all high­ly sought-after and trans­fer­able skills across many dif­fer­ent pro­fes­sion­al work­places. Through these drop-in class­es you will explore con­cepts such as: 

  • Trust­ing your instincts 
  • Mak­ing and accept­ing an offer’ 
  • Intro­duc­ing an objec­tive’ 
  • Advanc­ing and extend­ing the narrative 
  • Find­ing the game’.


Kier­an Gale is a grad­u­ate of Charles Sturt Uni­ver­si­ty hav­ing stud­ied a Bach­e­lor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Cre­ative Indus­tries (Theatre/​Media). He wish­es it were a short­er title than that.Kieran has stud­ied impro­vised the­atre at ITS in Syd­ney and uses these skills every day in social and pro­fes­sion­al set­tings. Improv has allowed him to per­form shows a part of Nation­al Sci­ence Week and as a Cap­tain Starlight for Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion. It’s a con­stant source of fun and explo­ration for him, and invalu­able in his prac­tice as a comedian.
