Liberate your imagination…
Merge your talents in writing and performing! In Improvoetry workshops we use improvisation exercises as a springboard for creating poetry and employ writing practices for use in spoken and non-spoken improvisation.
Participants learn spontaneous techniques to use as writing-block releases, for poetic inspiration, and to strengthen performance skills. Poems written on the spot are used to invent scenes and characters.
The workshop will enhance any prior knowledge and skills as well as create new pathways for expression to liberate your imagination!
All levels of acting and creative writing experience welcome (from zero to Oscar, Tony & Pulitzer Prize winning).
