Workshops for Performers
Our workshops will give improvisers a foundation in Annoyance’s specific philosophy of strong initiation with a commitment to characters and choices, withholding judgment, and play with abandonment. Perfect workshops to bring to your college, theatre, performing arts group, festival, or community.
This workshop will give up to 18 improvisers a foundation in Annoyance’s specific philosophy of strong initiation with commitment to characters and choices, withholding judgment, and play with abandonment. The workshop will move quickly and challenge participants with personal and specific feedback to think on their feet and find their own voice, And have a kick-ass time doing so.
Every year, hundreds of students travel to Chicago to train in weeklong intensives offered by our training center. Save the flight and let us come to you. We’ll bring 2 or more faculty members to your space to offer you an in-depth immersion into The Annoyance’s improv philosophy, covering a range of subjects that can also be customized to the needs of your theater or organization. We recommend this intensive culminating in an improvised show, performed by the students.
"The Annoyance led a fantastic improv session for us. It was engaging, dynamic, and kept the session brisk and relevant to our work — no small feat at the tail end of a half-day meeting in a room of nearly 400 people! I’d highly recommend The Annoyance to anyone looking to bring fun and energy into a professional event."
