The Monthly Improv offers practice in improvisation for actors.  We meet to exercise our listening and responding skills and for making quick choices to enhance the story.  Improvisation is one of the core techniques used by actors. It stretches the imagination, sparks spontaneity, and can lead to unforgettable performances.  It is about freeing up the mind so as to be more creative with choices and instincts

People practice improvisation for a whole range of reasons - some for performance, some to develop professional skills, and some who just love having a great time! Learning to:

  • Make simple, direct, and clear choices quickly.

  • Stay present, open, and in-the-moment.

  • Create and maintain an instant connection with your scene partner


Improv starts at 19:30 (doors open at 19:30) at the St. Andrew's Community Centre, Promenadengasse 9, 8001 Zurich.  The next sessions are shown on this page.

Improv meetings are open to anyone and count towards your membership session count.  For more information on membership, see the membership page.

Please note: Improv only runs if there are enough attendees. For this reason, please send us an email at to be placed on the attendance list (you only need to do this once).  That way, we will contact you to let you know if the improv session will go ahead or not.  Your email will not be used for any other purpose and you can unsubscribe at any time.

For the safety of our members, the committee have decided that all attendees to all in-person events will be checked in by the event organiser using the Swiss 'COVID Certificate Check App'.  Please make sure you bring your QR code either printed or on your phone to be checked in. All sessions will be subject to the capacity limits set out by the Kirchgemeindehaus Neumünster or St. Andrew's Church, which ZEST must abide by - for this reason, all in-person events will be first-come-first-served, so we apologise if we have to turn people away if there are too many attendees at any given session.
