Here at the Free Association, we aim to delight and inspire with a selection of the best spontaneous funny stuff around; showcasing everything from emerging talent to the most established and exciting improv acts around – not to mention our all-star house teams. All this and more, created in the moment before your astonished eyes.
The Free Association is also a place of learning, with a vision of providing the next generation of improvisers. We offer courses, in which you – yes, you! – can learn to be excellent, too. Ours is a one-of-a-kind syllabus of long-form improvisation training, based on the American style of long-form improv but with our own unique spin. The courses will teach people the joy of discovering what happens when you say yes; of learning how boundless your well of creativity is; the confidence to create and build with other people; how liberating it is to play, be silly and have fun – whether you are a performer or not.
