Theater Games are exercises that let your playfulness emerge. They encourage spontaneity and creativity and incorporate the “Yes...and” improv philosophy. Games are easy to learn and fun to play without any reason other than to have a good time. The pace will be geared to the comfort level of the class. We will be approaching them with an attitude of "let's just play and have fun." This two-session workshop includes a number of theater games developed by Viola Spolin, whose work is recognized for promoting spontaneity, awareness, and focus in actors. If you are a budding improviser, each game can be used to build your improv muscles. Important note: While rests and breaks are built into the workshop, you will be physically active, frequently alternating between standing and sitting, plus engaging in some physical movement. Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and dress for ease of movement. Exercise or Dance.
