Genres (or literary/film styles) are a fun way to bring some spice to your improv - be it soap opera, detective or sci-fi. They have been a part of improv since the beginning, with many shortform games and longform formats using them as inspiration. But sometimes they can be intimidating! 

You may find yourself asking: 

  • How can you get the most out of using genres in improv? -
  • How can you fake a genre you don’t know? 
  • Can you use your own favorite style? 
  • Does Everyone have to narrate whats going on in a detective scene? 
  • How can I get the hang of any genre for fun and profit? 

Well wonder no more, as this workshop is packed full of fun activities and tips on unleashing the potential of all sorts of genres - from Shakespeare to Disney, from Horror to Children’s show - as well as ways of improving your improvisation and challenging yourself!

This workshop is recommended for improvisers with at least 12 months improv experience.

The Brisbane Improv Festival will adhere to all current COVID restrictions and requirements. More info
