Matthieu starts his career as an engineer but more interested in acting the clown, he decides to become a professional comedian. Passionate about improvisation that he has been playing since 2016, he delved into the different styles, formats, concepts and techniques offered by the improvisation to feed his voracious need to play ! He also took the 2 years long ACT pro course at l’Ecole des Gens to learn all the acting skills. Deeply convinced by all the improvisation in English provides, Matthieu has been teaching his knowledge with kindness and enthusiasm for 2 years at the Atelier du 8. So folks, how about having fun creating from scratch ?

Improv Grenoble is the first and the only english spoken Improvisation class in Grenoble (created by Stéphane Boivin in 2018).

Improvisation is a collaborative method of creating live spontaneous theatre that is always funny, often touching and frequently poignant. Players conceive original scenes in the moment, spontaneously discovering ideas, relationships and worlds between them, based on a stimulus from the audience.

Improv is by its nature participatory, and is emboldened by a diversity within its audiences and performers. Improv Grenoble aims to provide a space where all people can perform together, embracing the mosaic of Grenoble’s multiculturalism, religious plurality, gender and sexual diversity and thriving in the plethora of ideas they provide.

The improvisation classes will be based on the following main features :

  • Team spirit, work on letting go attitude and free speaking and most of all : having pleasure on stage ! Become aware and use its inventiveness and keep in mind you can’t say wrong in improv !
  • Listen and take into account the propositions (Yes, and…) It is one thing to create a story by yourself, it is another thing to build one as a group ! How do I make my ideas exist while I greet and include the other propositions for, finally, choosing a common direction ?
  • Learn how to identify and play with the two improvisation archetypes : the relational acting (Yes and react) and the construction of the action
  • Work on the various methods to play with the characters, the improv formats, the various categories, the physical acting, the scenery, the status…

And if you want to go further, don’t worry, some crusty master classes will be proposed to you during the year ! Check out our section “stages”.

What we offer


Every Wednesday improvisers work together. At the core of that work is great teamwork, built on effective communication between team members, trust, support, and individuals feeling connected and committed to the full ensemble.


From time to time, the IMPROV team invites another team to play with them on stage, in English. The atmosphere is accessible, fun and non-judgemental which allowed everyone to learn from each other. The number of seats available is limited to 25 and online booking is mandatory.
