The amazing teacher and improviser Becky Johnson from Toronto, Canada will be visiting Helsinki at the end of January! She'll be teaching a very interesting improvisation workshop while she is here - so don't miss it!
The Listening & Awareness (and more!) Improv Workshop
Sunday 29th January 2017, 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
Location: Verandan @ Luckan, Simonkatu 8 (NB! Entrance from Yrjönkatu), Helsinki
The workshop includes a focus on listening and awareness, but contains much more! It begins with a stripped down idea of being together in the room on stage and from there tackles the utter simplicity of scene/comedic/dramatic instigations. The workshop is especially good for improvisers who have been exposed to structural ideas (formats) but need ways to fill them out with authenticity and/or keep the improv simple while still performing a fullness of situation and character. This workshop suits all levels of skill, as it adapts to the group attending, and Becky is happy to focus on feedback during the session.
