Half-day introduction to improvisation with globetrotting international teacher/director/performer, and Impro ACT Artistic Director, Nick Byrne. If you’d just like a quick splash of spontaneity in your life, or you’d like to taste-test impro, before joining our regular weekly course, Prepare To Be Unprepared (enrolling every quarter), why not try one of our popular Impro Tasters.

Led by Nick Byrne, who has taught and performed improvisation in 35 countries, you’ll be in safe hands, and have a fun day of practical exercises and games, in a warm, inclusive learning environment, that introduces you to all the fundamental principles of improvised theatre. The skills can be used on stage or in everyday life, for confidence, communications and social skills.

If you like it, you might want to enrol in one of our short courses, one-night-per-week, to qualify to participate in shows, or simply to have a bright, positive moment in every week.

Impro Tasters are held at Ainslie Arts Centre, two blocks from Canberra CBD.

• What to bring
Just yourself, but wear comfortable clothes that you can move in :)

An impro intensive weekend with internationally touring tutor, Nick Byrne, (now wih experience teaching in 35 cities, worldwide), but with built-in summer socialising, highlighting the natural and nightlife delights of Canberra, Australia’s Bush Capital, in the company of the best of friends…..


Let’s have something mid-summer, to save us from the off-season blues? Yes, let’s! Bring your swimmers, your kangaroo encounter clothes, and perhaps a little post-nightlife Berocca, along with your desire to uplift your inspiration for improv, boost your performance skills, and play on stage, yourself (not compulsory).

Starting, whenever you arrive on the Friday night (not compulsory), we’ll have a very social jam, followed by some Canberra nightlife that out-of-towners may not think exists in the Bush Capital……, oh, but it does….

Nick Teaching Candid Torun

Saturday, at a suitably civilised late morning time, we begin an improv curriculum, led by Nick Byrne, and designed specifically to suit individual participants (questionnaire sent to you, after enrolment), to lift you from your current impro-plateau to the fresh air of the top of your personal impro-mountain.

Later, in the day, visit Canberra’s favourite swimming hole for a summer dip, in the midst of nature, (or just sit around with a few drinks and enjoy the included BBQ delights). Saturday night, is more nightlife delights, for those with the energy.

Sunday, it’s back to training from late morning, with a late afternoon/early-evening show performed by you (if you want to), in a format specifically designed to trial the learnings you chose to concentrate on, yourself, whether it’s a solo scene, something musical, or just some simple scenework and games with your new best friends.

Let’s do it! Book now, below, or email for further payment options.
