Toi Pōneke, Wellington, 61/69 Abel Smith Street, Te Aro, Wellington 6011, New Zealand


If you take care of the "now" in any improv scene, the future always shows up as a great scene. If you don't take care of the "now" the future never shows up and the scene spins into quicksand. 

This all-day workshop, taught by award-winning international improv theatre artist and storyteller, Jonathan Pitts uses a deeply intuitive scenic process learned from the late Martin de Maat, one that focuses on listening and responding and learning how to take care of the "now" by becoming fully invested in it. 

Learn to let go of worries about where the scene is going and instead learn to understand where the scene is right now.  

Fresh from his stint at the Auckland Improv Festival, this is a one-off, not-to-be-missed improv masterclass. Culminating in an evening show, it's set to be a great day and night of improv excellence! 

Book now so we can book his travel & accomodation asap!
