Story Kitchen Impro is a improvisation theatre company based in London, founded by Faye Brann. Faye is a writer and improviser, recently returned to London after nine years living in the Middle East. She started Story Kitchen Impro on her return to the UK in order to pursue her love of the impro formats created by Keith Johnstone.
Until her move to London, Faye was part of the house team at the Courtyard Playhouse in Dubai, captaining short form shows for theatre audiences, working with schools and corporate clients and performing at several arts festivals in the region. Among others, she has trained with Patti Stiles from Impro Melbourne and Shawn Kinley from the Loose Moose Theatre, and won ‘Best Female Improviser’ at the UAE Comedy Awards.
For the past five years, Faye has performed, directed and hosted Keith Johnstone’s Theatresports™ and Maestro™ formats regularly as part of the Courtyard Playhouse annual programme of events. She has coached teens for Theatresports™ schools tournaments and has also devised and run workshops for beginner adult improvisers.
