Why Audiences Love Watching You
– And Why They Don’t
Are you boring spectators because you don’t know how to be fully alive and engaging on stage? Is your acting and improvisation hit-and-miss?
Take the guesswork out of performance. Learn creative acting through the body, and you can captivate audiences at will.
Is it for you?
Do you fully grasp how the creative mind works in unison with the actor’s body? Are you connecting physicality and imagination to become magnetic on stage? Why are the eyes of the audience not riveted on your performance?
By Caspar Schjelbred
Yes, that’s me
I created Impro Supreme to complement all the regular acting and improv classes that don’t bother much with physical acting and individual creativity. In my workshops, it’s quite the opposite!
You will engage fully with yourself as a creative artist – and turn your improvisations into theatre that is a joy to behold.
To be more present on stage
And more confident thanks to solid techniques that connect body and mind.
To be more precise and direct in your acting
Let’s make sure you connect your emotions and your movement.
To learn how to practise correctly
According to your abilities and sensibilities – and what you want to achieve.
To feel good and improvise magnificently
Come along and take yourself seriously as an artist and instrument of your art.
What you can expect
Start again from the bottom up – every time
Body awareness is the foundation of all Impro Supreme classes and workshops. A real base. Not just a quickly forgotten warm-up but a constant throughout.
Feel your body
Take the time to feel your movements and gestures. Appreciate the nuances of your physical shape – your attitude – and feel how you are here and now.
Play for real
Pay attention to how you are doing what you are doing. Grasp the immediate sense of your actions and movements. Articulate your intentions clearly.
Dare to see what’s inside you – or just let it rise. Cultivate your creative imagination in a structured manner. Develop your artistic vision and share it with the world.
This training that connects body and imagination will serve you everywhere in the performing arts – whether it’s to improvise theatre, speak lines of dialogue, dance on the wild side or perform a clown act.
A word on clowns and clowning
Clowning is always welcome
There’s a lot of clowning happening spontaneously in the Impro Supreme classes and workshops.
Please note that the instructions concerning clowning will always remain technical and pragmatic – just like for the physical improvisation. To be clear: you won’t be searching to find your clown.
Rest assured that you’ll be able to explore clowning without any ambiguous psychobabble.
Come along to practise what the great clowns are doing instead of trying to make heads or tails of everything people say about clowns and clowning.
