Because Improv involves saying the first thing that comes to mind, it can surface our biases, however unconscious. At ImprovWorks, when problematic assumptions and stereotypes appear in our games or scenes, we take that as an opportunity to learn. 


At the end of every class or show, we engage in a feedback round where our students are asked to reflect upon any harmful stereotypes that appeared in their games or scenes and we discuss how we can do better. Of course, that feedback is also welcome anonymously through the feedback box at the bottom of this page.


In this way, we hope to become not only better improvisers, but better people.

ImprovWorks Berlin is dedicated to increasing the diversity of voices on Berlin's stages. We offer two half-price spots in each of our classes for members of under-represented groups or marginalized communities. If you wish to apply for one of these scholarships, please see HERE.

All of our staff and students agree to a Code of Conduct before working or taking classes with us, and we will remove customers who are engaging in any kind of intolerance or harassment.

Please note that our venue is sadly not wheelchair-accessible, and the building is under monument protection ("denkmalschutz"), so cannot be renovated.


We are eager to make our courses as accessible as possible, but please note that we do not have experience or expertise teaching people with disabilities. Please also note that our stage is one meter high and so has a fall risk.


If you have access needs that you think we should know about or you think could impact your ability to fully enjoy our courses, you are welcome to either: come to one of our open-stage jams on any Sunday evening to check out the space and discuss your needs in person, or email us detailing your access needs. In either event, we will assess how we can best meet your access needs. This may require some time, and we appreciate your patience.
