An Improvisation workshop involves learning the arts, of listening, unblocking one’s mind, accepting others’ ideas, transformational energy and positive presence. The workshops are fun, funny, easy to pick up and always inspiring. The energy is fully creative and the lessons learnt are instantly applicable to one’s life. Language is more than just words. It’s about transporting ideas. In this workshop you will look at unlocking and expressing your creativity: to explore expression using sight, sound, body and mind; to learn to co-operate in creative situations by reinforcing each other and building action through mutually beneficial structures; and to learn how these structures, when used, help to create an agile mindset and improve an ability to operate in chaos. The workshop is about doing, using theory to help action in performance and ideas to flourish. This workshop is also about having fun with learning!
