The story teaches us about the people and world around us, helping to make sense of it all. We can find a story in our books, movies, songs, news, Ted Talks, tweets, feeds, drunken WhatsApps and Tinder profiles. In this course, we will pay homage to the story through the lens of improvisation. Once upon a time there was an improviser who wanted to focus on storytelling. And one day, that improviser signed up for Scene & Story Structure. And then the improviser told stories happily ever after. The story doesn't end there! Your graduation show will showcase all the storytelling skills you learned over the 8 weeks. Friends and family will be stunned, they'll think it's all scripted. You'll know it's all improv ;-) Enjoy FREE entry to easylaughs Friday shows and Sunday workshops for the duration of your course. All courses and workshops are in English and in Amsterdam. Please note: You should take at least two improv basics classes (or equivalent) before taking this intermediate class.
