Solo Performance Improvisation with Andrew Morrish

Andrew uses a skills approach to improvisation. In this workshop we engage in processes of tool development, performance opportunities and feedback.

These processes can form a reflective practice that will foster the development of solo improvisational performance.

We will explore sources of content such as, breath, movement, voice and imagination, which will be fueled by the spirit of communication and shared pleasure.

Participants are encouraged to become their own editor in performance, using the skills of shifting their point of attention, developing texture and maintaining clarity. Participants should also come expecting to enjoy themselves.


This workshop is suitable for performance artists and others with interest in Performance Improvisation (from lots to little experience).

Max 14 students.

Individual Coach 14/4 12.00-15.00 & 15/4 12.00-15.00/The sessions are full-booked

With Andrew Morrish

Individual coaching sessions last approximately 55 minutes, during which we choose a particular aspect of your performing to explore.

The session will be a combination of discussion, tool development, performing and feedback all focussed on your individual needs.

Each session is 3 hours long and Andrew will work with 3 people in this time.

It is expected that all 3 participants will stay for the 3 hour session.
