Did you ever find yourself in an uncomfortable situation on the stage? Do you avoid certain topics because you don't know how to deal with them? How do you cope with diplomatic mistakes? Following the aim of ImproWoW's project to promote and empower Improv communities about Diversity & Inclusion, this workshop will focus on practical tools and exercises that focus on making our stories and our characters diverse and inclusive and how to cope on the stage with uncomfortable situations or delicate topics. We will work on stereotypes and cliche, on physical and dramaturgical boundaries and on the "limits" of humor.
Duration: 10 hours
Times: Wednesday & Thursday All Day
Improv Voicestra is an a capella longform where improvisers not only perform scenes, but also create an orchestra of voices, enriching the storytelling techniques without the use of any musical instruments. Players will learn how to find their real voice, its colours, how to use it and the magic of using it to vocally improvise stories in many different ways in your scenes. This show explores all the possibilities of acting, voice, and movement, for the perfect marriage between vocal improvisation and improvisational theater, because the power of the music is not just in being a soundtrack to improvisation, but its potential to make it the main focus and touch people’s souls.
*This workshop culminates in a mixer team performance
