How to Exploit a Clown
Duration: 4 hours
Times: Wednesday & Thursday PM
Always wondered how clowning techniques can influence you as an improviser, without entering the stage as a clown? Rather than becoming a clown, this workshop is about what can clowning do to enhance your skills in expression, physical movement, working together non-verbally, and also being vulnerable and aware of what is going on with your partner and how you can add to the scene and support them fully.
How to Turn Your Group into a Family
Duration: 2 hours
Times: Saturday Afternoon
On stage we are one; a whole. Off stage, after a show, everyone reflects and reacts differently. This workshop focuses on giving honest feedback to each other after a show or during practice. It is something that a lot of groups struggle with, or find trivial. This workshop is about creating an open workspace where fears and thoughts can be shared and about two-way communication. We will run through specific exercises that you can take home to your groups to enhance the connection you have to one another.
Duration: 2 hours
Times: Friday Afternoon
There's always that extra spark when we talk about what really happened to us. It's that spark that I love investigating. Let's play with true stories. Let's play with the combination of an authentic storyteller, and the playfulness of improvisation. Let's inspire the audience with a game of truth or dare. This workshop reveals different reflective formats to offer a variety of perspectives on stories. Come with the curiosity of an unwritten first page of your new novel.
*This workshop culminates in a mixer team performance on Friday night
