Stumbles, fumbles, gaffs, screw ups; the risk-assessor’s nightmare is the physical comedian’s dream! Nothing makes an audience laugh like everything going wrong at the most crucial moment. But how do we construct these moments to make them safe and executable for the actors but also surprising and delightful for the audience? And most importantly of all, how do we employ them as part of an improviser’s toolkit?
Join Lecoq-trained improviser Caitlin Campbell for a day of exploring the world of physical and slapstick comedy. You’ll learn practical techniques for performing convincing mistakes on stage, along with a narrative and character-based approach for integrating them into your scenework and stories.
This course is suitable for new improvisers with a course or two under their belt, or more experienced players interested in learning something new.
About the Instructor:
Caitlin is a theatre-maker, actor and teacher currently based in the south of France. Since discovering improv at Bristol University in 2011 she spent the next decade as a confirmed improv addict, performing and co-creating shows with Murder, She Didn’t Write, The Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, This Is Your Musical, The Bish Bosh Bash!, Screwball!, Completely Wonderful and the Bristol Improv Marathons, among others. Improv has taken her all over the world; from performing in a circus tent in Australia, teaching and co-directing in Korea and being rained on for ten years at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She is a co-founder and former Artistic Director of the Bristol Improv Theatre, and taught and developed courses there as a senior instructor for eight years.Her acting and devising credits include My Father’s Nose, The Rocky Shock and Drac & Jill.
She has just completed a two-year professional course in physical theatre at the Ecole Internationale de Theatre Jacques Lecoq in France.
