This workshop is open to performers who are interested in learning improvisation driven by character, made popular by Los Angeles’ Groundlings Theater as well as Mandel’s own school in NYC, Improvolution.

In the workshop, you will approach the fundamentals of improv emphasizing character – the
“who” of the scene – exploring how a scene grows and deepens from the character’s information, thoughts, behaviours, emotional life, and relationships to one another.

Participants will also discuss and explore what constitutes a character, how to create and
improvise as one, and how Character Improv is unique to all other forms of improvisation.

*A limited number of bursaries are available for this event, for those receiving Job Seeker’s Allowance, welfare benefits, or participants who are in need of access support. Please contact for details.
