Bath Improv.
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
7pm - 9pm


This week's Bath Improv will be a little different from normal.

Some of us are performing on stage next month, so this session will include two 22-minute sections where those people will be practising and refining a new format. Everyone is still welcome though.

And as the whole session is two hours there will be other warm-ups, games and scenes to take part in. We will also value your feedback, plus you can make suggestions for what we will do next!

At the moment we have rotating hosts, so you get the benefit of different teaching styles and a mixture of exercises and games.

The classes run every MONDAY 7-9pm, at The St. James Wine Vaults (upstairs), which is just behind Royal Crescent.

There are a number of people who attend through Facebook rather than Meetup, so even if the numbers signed up on Meetup look low the class will still definitely be on, and we normally have around 7-12 people attending.

There is also plentiful free street parking on nearby Julian Road and Weston Road, or in the park.

Please note there is a voluntary £2 donation towards room costs, though your first time is FREE!
THE FILM CLUB Two Days, One Night
The Film Club
7:30pm - 9:30pm


This is a new group. Please read about its aim in What we're about. To find it click on blue The Film Club above.

Two Days, One Night (89mns), starring Marion Cotillard, is on the BBC iplayer until 22 April. It's a less complex film than Clouds of Sils Maria (most films would be!) but it does have some interesting things to say about us. Here are some aspects of the film we can comment on/think about. But of course do bring up anything else you found interesting.

Is her husband right to push her to talk to her colleagues?
What do you think of her taking pills all the time?

It's clearly hard for her to talk to the people but she nevertheless does it. She wants, of course, to keep her job but do you think she does it for other reasons too?

Whose reaction would you like to comment on?
Whose reaction do you think hurts her the most?
What does her reaction to Timur's crying tell us about human nature?
What's the effect the negative responses from people have on her, apart from disappointment?
What purpose does the unexpected offer of work at the end serve in the film?

Do you think she was right to ask people to vote for her to stay when they would lose the bonus? Would you do the same in her place?
At the end of the film, on the phone to her husband, she says 'I'm happy'. Why do you think she is happy?

What's the overall comment the film makes about people?

Would you say this is an unusual film? In what way?
