Improbable Summer Workshops

Improbable has developed its improvisation practice for over 30 years. We’ve taken this work all over the world from Syria to Sydney, from rooms above pubs to grand opera houses. Now we’re bringing this practice to our new home, beautiful Bore Place in Kent, in a series of Improbable Summer Workshops

Two residential weeks where we will bring our practice into focus with PLACE as both a theme and an embodied experience. Come and join us on this practical, imaginal and profound journey of staying put, of reconnecting to each other and our surroundings, and of re-finding who we are, here and now.

Week 1: This week is an invitation to share and experience Improbable's core improvisational practice, with a particular focus on place, on allowing our improv to be in dynamic dialogue with the fields, nature and the world. Because after all, the skills we practice as improvisers - of listening, responding, adapting, relinquishing our plan in order to listen some more - and the understandings into our subtle and complex interdependence that impro makes vividly apparent - are perhaps what the world needs more than ever right now.

Week 2: What could we make, if we follow ourselves and the materials we find in and around Bore Place? Sticks and stones, willows and an old brick works - join us for a week of following, finding, making, and animating. A week of improvisation in collaboration with the materials around us; a week of puppetry, poetry and play. A week of practicing, in a tangible, practical way, how to hold a creative conversation with the landscape around us, because it might hold surprising stories, waiting for us to find them, and let themselves be told. 

Both weeks will be residential at Bore Place with a cohort of max. 20 people each week.

Cost: £2-2.5k per week with all accommodation and food included. Funded bursary places are available.
