Ready to Join?

Come join us for a joyful virtual picnic with improvisational theater training! We will play several exercises and games. You do not need to know anything about improv - beginners are welcome and will be safe :-)

Topic: Because the participants enjoyed it very much last time, we will continue experimenting with scenes inspired by visual art! :-)

Skills that improv is all about: Making your partner look good, accepting and building on others' ideas, playfulness, listening, flexibility/ spontaneity, focus on the here and now, taking risks, being aware/ mindful, and balancing freedom vs structure.

The good news: everyone can do this, you do not need to be particularly brave, spontaneous or creative :-) But there are a lot of techniques and concepts behind improv. And improv skills can help in day to day life, too.

The typical choreography of our sessions: people arrive for the session, then various improv exercises, games and a bit of theory and reflection, with one break in between. We try to make everyone feel safe and welcome while experimenting and learning together. We usually practice in English, but might switch to German if everyone is fine with it.
