Artistic Director

Under the guidance of Artistic Director Mick Napier, The Annoyance also provides excellent quality training in improvisation. Based on Napier’s book Improvise. Scene From the Inside Out and Behind The Scenes: Improvising Long Form, the Annoyance philosophy focuses on the individual, giving students feedback and support to allow them to find and enhance their personal point of view and creative voice.
