Cameron Teaches You Great Improv
I've been performing long and shortform improv for eight years and teaching for four. My style of teaching is less talk, more action. I'll get you doing more of the things that make improv easy and less of the things that make improv difficult. I know that fun improv relies on skills that must be practiced into habit. The principles I teach are sincerity, reliability and respect.
"The best experience I've had learning improv to date."
Workshop - Sticking to Your S**t
You teach the audience what is important by doing it over and over again. Sticking to your one thing is a fundamental piece of the improv puzzle. You'll learn that consistency and reliability is more important than being clever.
Workshop - Harold
How do you build a whole show from a one-word suggestion? By paying attention, noticing details and taking the next obvious step. When your whole team does this you are performing a Harold. It's a longform structure that supports your team and allows for any creative contribution. You'll learn the classic Harold and that what you notice is what's important.
"More than technical skills, Cameron teaches us the right attitude to improvise the right way: easy and fun! Nothing is ever a problem!"
Workshop - Commit and React
You learn a dark Harold that thrives on commitment and reaction. Analyse your own emotions and put them on show. It's challenging and rewarding. Based on the show performed by my group Salt.
"Through these days I have felt seen in a personal way and I feel encouraged, happy and hungry for more!"
Workshop - Less is More
I challenge the assumption that you need to improvise interesting things to make engaging improv. Do less and less onstage and discover how interesting you really are. Go against the flow, dare to be boring.
