This fun, high energy, interactive creative workout is great for anyone who is looking to free themselves up and breakaway from linear thinking and shutdowns. Sean Michael is excited about offering a fun Spolin/game based improv workshop in a supportive environment. You’ll be asking yourself the key questions, “How do I feel right now?”, “Who am I, today?”, “What does this mean to me?” and, of course you’ll be employing the most basic of improv tenets, “Yes and!” Focusing on relationship and agreement and building solid scenes from this strong base. The workshop starts with natural introduction games and slowly builds to scene work by the end of the session. This will be a fun workout for everyone from the first time improviser to the seasoned improviser. Please, wear clothing and shoes which allow for freedom of movement.
