The Maydays guest teacher, Bill Arnett's Sunday Sessions

Description: Due to popular demand, Bill Arnett will now be running a second day of workshops for The Maydays!

Guest Improv Teacher, Bill Arnett – 1 improv legend, 1 day, 2 workshops!

The Maydays Guest Improv Teacher, Bill Arnett, founder of the Chicago Improv Studio & author of The Complete Improviser is coming to Brighton to treat us to another two workshops in one day.

Please note: Sundays workshops are not duplicates of Saturday's, so if you've booked on our SOLD OUT Saturday, then you have another 2 workshops to enjoy with Bil!

1st Workshop: 11.30 am-2 pm
Characters: Inside out and outside in

Where do characters come from? How can I create them quickly? This workshop will address those two questions with two techniques: working form your body and working from your mind.

2nd Workshop: 3 pm-5.30 pm
Playing Slow (without being boring)

Playing slow is more than improvising slowly. It requires an appreciation of the subtitles of human behaviour. By leveraging the small shifts that occur from moment to moment we can turn a thirty-second scene into a three-minute scene.
