Come join us for a joyful session with some improvisational theater training activities and games! Topic: '10 ways of anything' • Improv theater is basically theater without a script, with characters and stories created in teamwork between the actors. • You do not need to know anything about improv to attend, and we will try to make everyone feel safe and welcome. • Everyone can do this, you do not need to be particularly brave, spontaneous or creative :-) • There are several techniques and concepts one can learn, and improv skills can help in daily life too :-)

Some skills that are important in improv: • accepting and building on others' ideas, • making your partner look good, • listening, • playfulness, and • being courageous.

How the session will work: We will play various improv exercises and games, with some theory and reflection in between.

Here is a summary of what we did: ○ Intro, reasoning behind workshop design ○ Shake hands and discuss (pairs) § Why did I come here? § What do I know about improv? ○ Woosh-Wop-Zap-Groovealicious ○ Word Ball (in pairs) ○ Flow of statues (in pairs) ○ "Superheroes I have a problem" (in groups of 4) § A) Multiple solutions, the person who gave the problem votes for the best solution § B) Scene painting, co-create solutions ○ Short break ○ Turn-by-turn (in pairs) § A) 6 steps in total, 3 per person (each step either a non-verbal move, emotional sound or sentence) § B) same but only non-verbal moves ○ Multiple ways of doing the same thing (in groups of 6) § One person proposes an activity (e.g. entering a cafe) § 2 from the group of 6 play a short scene with that activity, then 2 others play it again but in a different way, and the other 2 too § Repeat with different activities Debrief: reflection on and conclusions from workshop (in pairs)
