You are a well-spring of ideas, emotions and memories, a latent poet, artist and genius. Experience your innate humanity and creativity through improvisational theatre to tap into your hidden potential. Learn to be spontaneous to create dramatic pieces, fun characters and interesting stories in the moment, off the cuff, on the fly. Give in to the joy and discovery of the unknown as you step into a dynamic journey of trust-building and exploration, all the while having fun with your team partners. The process is also therapeutic, relieving you of anxieties and facilitating with self-discovery. No script, no preparation, no prior experience as performer-come with your presence to be on your way…
We will spend three days playing games, activities and drills that open ourselves up, connect us to each other and bring drama to life. The workshop will culminate with a ‘sharing session’ on the fourth day with those curious about improvisation and who want to see what it is like to surrender to uncertainty with joy and trust. We will give them a taste of the attitude and fun from the process of the workshop and how that can carry to our everyday life.
