Improv: Moments & Mindset
Facilitator: Neil Mullarkey
Event time: Thu 1st Apr 2021 at 11:00am - Thu 1st Apr 2021 at 12:00pm
Have you ever seen an improv show – where a team of performers create spontaneous scenes and stories based on audience suggestions? Here is your chance to experience an hour-long taster session on April Fools’ Day, run by one of the most respected improv performers and teachers in the world.
It’s not stand-up comedy. It’s about ensemble skills which you can apply every day – at work and at home – in person and virtually.
Applying these techniques will help you build relationships, listen a whole lot better, collaborate more effectively and access your creativity. And, you will see Zoom used like you’ve never seen before – it will be plenty of fun!
This session is being brought to you through the gifting economy. You are welcome to donate, as much as or as little as you wish. Please add “APRILFOOLS” to your donation if using Paypal. Alternatively, you can donate upon registration. Click here to Donate via Paypal
