Longform Form Study: This Is Your Life

This course is not available this term. Please visit http://www.barcelonaimprovgroup.com/classes/ to see what is on offer for Winter 2017.


Starting on Tuesday, November 15th, B.I.G. School of Improv will be offering the following form study. Students must have completed an Introduction to Longform Improvisation course here or elsewhere, and if not, must audition for the course. If you wish to take it, please read the class dates and reserve your space.


This is a brand new improv form that your team will debut! This Is Your Life takes the true stories and memories of one audience member and brings them to life through improvisation. The team devises the framework of the evening with questions about love, work, travel, or anything else and creates improvised scenes based on the emotions, the details, and the points of view expressed by the audience volunteer. This five week form study culminates in a show. The class will be conducted like a rehearsal process for a team. Completion of Introduction to Longform Improvisation or instructor approval are required.

The 3-hour sessions will run on Tuesday evenings from 7.00pm to 10.00pm with a short break in the middle.

Price and Class Size

The TIYL form study costs 120€ if you choose to pay in installments, or 105€ if you pay in full at the first class. A deposit is required along with your registration.

We’re keeping the team size small so that everyone has the maximum opportunity to perform, practice, and get personal feedback with the teacher – the maximum size is 10. With such limited spaces, it’s a good idea to get in touch with us as soon as possible to enquire about availability.

If you sign up, that means that you are committed to attend all 5 rehearsals. Please inform the teacher if you will be unable to attend a session or if you are coming late. There are no make-up classes. If you are paying via a payment plan, you need to bring cash to pay in installments at each session. We do not pro-rate classes. Every student pays the same tuition regardless of attendance.
