Improv for Mental Health

Postby mezzaninedoor » Tue Oct 02, 2018 8:42 am

Last night I started a 10 week Improv course with Dogface Improv in Norwich.
It was really good
Think Im going to make new friends and laugh a lot

Its meant to be very good for Mental Health

Hi Tony
Good to hear from you and sounding positive.

Lots going on in your life last we heard from you. Hope things have settled some.

Much the same on here.

Take care. Chris

So Im 7 lessons in and its really going well.
Every week Im challenged and I seem to get through the session.
Its very quick thinking and If Im low mood and anxious I do doubt my ability but I think the class is a nice bunch of people and its a very collaborative environment with no 'wrong' to any class work.

Last night I went to an improv JAM where there were really experienced Improvisers, I went expecting to just watch the show for 2 hours but I found myself letting my name go in the hat and I performed 2 two people scenes with more experienced improvisers. really enjoyed it though it felt hairy lairy scary.

1st scene became about a Yorkshire family that only had a roast bumblebee for Christmas dinner.
2nd scene became about the Nativity and Mary misplacing the Son of God.

Lawks, our Imaginations can be leftfield.
