The music in you!
Everybody can perform music in improv, successfully and comfortably. Nick Byrne knows this, for certain, after addressing this in full eight-week courses, in his home city, for many years, and working in various cultures around the world, to great effect. Now, he offers the best bits in this one-off workshop.
If you’re that person who thinks that can’t do it, whether through fear, or perceived talent, or you’re the person who is already comfortable with musical improv, but wishes they could explore new ways, this is the workshop for you.
More than just singing, you’ll discover simple ways to move to music, to accompany scenes and songs (even if you don’t play an instrument), and how to respond effectively to background music in scenework.
Students leave refreshed, relieved, and inspired. Relax! You can do it!

Bio of Nick Byrne
Nick Byrne is Artistic Director, and the creator of, Improvention; Australia’s international festival and convention of unscripted theatre. He is also Artistic Director of Impro ACT, the major improvisational theatre company in Australia’s capital, Canberra.
Nick works as an actor, director, producer, and musician, in all realms of theatre and film, and is a regular delegate to the Australian Theatre Forum, but improvisation is his ruling passion. He has worked in 30 cities throughout Europe, Asia, and Australasia, as an individual guest, or in festivals, including; Moment16 & Moment18 in Vienna, Mt Olymprov in Athens, FIIF in Tampere, Improfest in Gothenburg, Salento Improv Festival, Sofia Improv Festival, RIIF in St Petersburg, TILT in Tallinn, Bengaluru (India), Jo Festival in Poland, and Singapore Improv Festival.
He teaches and directs all styles of the craft, and has done so for fifteen years, producing groundbreaking shows, “The Displaced” (refugee issues), “Crescendo” (a rock band with dramas), “Drivers” (about your internal monologues), “In Person 8” (improvised impersonations), and “Parallel” (three physical stories at once).
Nick tries to make the areas of improvisation that seem difficult, easier for performers, and reduce their worry, so that they can play at their peak. He also conducts workplace sessions, helping Olympians deal with adversity, and United Nations Peacekeepers to remain culturally aware. He likes to explore.
