With a focus on short form storytelling, the purpose of this course is to make the students proficient in the art of improvising short scenes as played in an improv match.
The course is essentially focused on Robert Gravel’s match format, Keith Johnstone style of improv and on understanding the codes of genres. The match format is both extremely fun and full of learnings. This format will teach the students how to avoid fear mechanisms and killing a story. The genres that will be explored include : action, drama, romantic comedy, spy movie, absurd theatre, Tennessee Williams, Shakespeare, etc.

Through the study of the match games, you will be able to understand the focus of any game and how to make it interesting for the audience. Also, the tremendous advantage of the match format is that it creates a team spirit. By the end of the course, the improvisers will be completely able to play a match in front of an audience which will be the final result of the course. Improvisers will be able to act both as a player or as the referee.

Each semester culminates in a showcase of skills for the public.
