Improvisation and Storytelling 
– warsztaty improwizacji teatralnej

Improvisation and Storytelling: Walk the boundaries of where improvisation and storytelling meet. We will explore the structure of stories in the oral tradition, make stories as a group, play with content, physicality, music and silence. We will explore use of the space to tell a story, using techniques such as viewpoints and freeform. We will explore both performance improvisation as well as improv for composition. Expect discovery and fun!

Suitable for those with some improv performance experience.
