September 7: Zen of Improv – an improv workshop with Brad Daniels

zen of improv
Where: Genetix S Pte. Ltd. [#05-11, 47 Kallang Pudding Road]
When: 7pm-0930pm
From $33, book online
This workshop is aimed at beginner to mid-experienced improv performers who are looking to expand their skills and get a fresh perspective on improvisation.

In improv, performers need to be able to let go of the ego, to be fully in the moment. But they also need to be able to look at the bigger picture of what a scene – or a show – needs at a particular point. Though a series of games and exercises, participants are put in “two minds”.

The workshop aims to teach performer techniques to stop trying to win at improv, and start aiming to succeed. Letting go of is why the best players can make improvisation seem effortless. Great improv is not about making connections, it’s about uncovering connections that were already there.

The Boris is also featured as a performance & training game – because a brilliant mind in panic is a beautiful sight.


September 14: OPEN MIC – Stand-up and Improv
