Edan has a huge amount of experience in improvisation, not only as an actor, but also as a founding member of Improv Theatre Sydney (ITS). This eight-week course will be improvisation for actors, not solely theatre sports. Improvisation for actors is all about creating the tools for listening, responding yielding and accepting ‘offers’ made by other actors in a scene. Edan’s series will introduce each actor to the fundamentals of great improvisation technique and how it relates to scripted acting work. This series is a seriously fun, engaging workshop that will give each participant significant skills to add to their repertoire for the development and execution of character, for both stage and film.
