To Be Exciting and Original on Stage
Refine your physical acting. Sharpen your improvisation skills. Develop your creativity. Grow as a theatre artist.
Impro Supreme – Who is it for?
Whether a novice actor or a veteran performer, you know you’ve got to keep in shape. Not just physically, but artistically – as a whole person. Why depend on directors, coaches and colleagues when you can take charge of your own training?

Life’s too short for boring acting. It’s also too long to constantly renew yourself. Impro Supreme is my antidote to boredom and stress – both on and off stage.
Acting should be enjoyable and inspiring. That’s it. So let’s aim to become fully alive performers: bold actors, intelligent clowns, expressive comedians, and dancers with a sense of humour! Let’s take ourselves seriously and embody our creative freedom! What better way to live and make a positive difference in the world?

How I work
Playing is good. But playing generically won’t get you very far. You have to get specific; know what you’re playing at, what you’re playing with and how. Consciously try things, note your observations. Proceed much like in empirical research.
Creative exploration is only the beginning of the adventure. Every finding you make should expand your capacities and scope as a performer. That’s why you have to practise and repeat discoveries again and again. Make creativity your home.
You take ownership
Doing exercises and following instructions will give you good results. But it’s not until you start tweaking things yourself and try out your own ideas that things will really happen for you. And that’s what Impro Supreme is all about.
What will be your next step to become a unique actor?
Learning to take charge of your own acting training is a central aspect of what Impro Supreme offers you. Practising full-on improvisation exercises at home on your own is a big step and – let’s face it – quite peculiar at first. The reward, however, is immense. Make this work yours, and you are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.
Now things start getting exciting! First of all, you’ll get immediate feedback when you play and perform in front of the group. You’ll also deepen your understanding by seeing how the others wrestle with their strengths and weaknesses. Impro Supreme workshops are generally in small groups (8 to 12 participants) so that every participant is guaranteed an intense and fruitful experience.
Do you need more attention to improve on a specific aspect of the work? Or have a particular issue that you want to solve quickly? – I’m available for video calls as well as in-person sessions. Feel free to get in touch if you think I could be of assistance, and we’ll start by having a quick chat about it.
Do you have an idea for an act or a show you want to create? Or do you need to shape up an existing one? My eyes and love for visual detail are at your service. Please note: it’s a collaboration – I’ll assist you with suggestions and directions based on what you show me. You always remain the artist and creator.
