Online Improv Elective: Growing Old Playfully
About this Event
Have you noticed you’re often the (much) older person in an improv room? Do classmates mean well but sometimes say weird stuff? This workshop is a safe space where we’ll learn and practise specifically designed exercises that playfully tackle ageist offers. Expect to feel empowered and to have a lot of fun.
This Elective is for nearly new improvisers aged 54 years and over.
In this Elective, you’ll:
- Learn strategies that support and protect your fun (even when your scene partner brings some age-related ‘weird’).
- Drill some clear responses to get you out of ageism-based trouble.
- Discover how to be an ally in a scene where older age has been foregrounded.
- Unleash both your inner curmudgeon and your inner teen!
Min. participants 6, max. participants 14. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
