Do you tell stories and you know they could be funnier? Would you like to be a stronger performer? If you want to be a truly engaging storyteller, you need to learn how to have more fun in your performance and get out of your head.
In this three-hour workshop, you will learn some of the basic concepts of improvisation and how you can apply them to your storytelling to become a stronger writer and performer. In the first half of this workshop, we will play a series of improv games and exercises that promote both vulnerability and playfulness. In the second half of the workshop, each storyteller will have the opportunity to get in front of the group and tell a 3-minute story, learning how to make their piece more comedic and in some cases more honest. You will be taught how to get and give feedback on your performance, as well as solid ideas to help your piece be even more funny.
Please have a 3-minute story that you are familiar with that you would like to work on in the workshop.
