Clare Kerrison Improv

Seriously Lighthearted

I’m an improvisation tutor, actor and director based in Wellington, NZ. You can often see me on stage at 'Late Night Knife Fight' at BATS Theatre, in the annual improvised soap opera, at the New Zealand Improv Festival, playing organic two-prov with a stranger in my show 'Meet Cute' or in my solo impro show, 'Infernal Recall.'

Things I Can Do

General Improvisation classes for adults will start up again in 2019. I also have a range of targeted workshops for actors, executives, team building and mental wellbeing.

A Few Accomplishments

I've been a clown at a shopping mall in Germany, gained my theatre qualifications from NASDA (Christchurch) and my degree in Psychology from the University of Waikato. I’ve been Business Manager for BATS Theatre, played the lead role in a contemporary NZ production of Hedda Gabler (BATS Theatre, 2009), worked for a UK arts pricing consultancy, developed an improv school (Cambridge UK), co-founded Cambridge Improv Factory (UK), was an original member of London’s performance art improv team The Dreaming, co-founded Basejump Improv (Wellington)... and I've walked the Inca trail to Machu Picchu (Peru) because life isn’t just about improv, right?
