Creative Improv Practice for Homeworking with Katy Schutte
About this Event
For people working at their desks to get ready for a day of work. 10:30 am one-hour session that acts as a big a morning coffee break. We’ll play with ways of warming into creativity, feeling freed up, silencing the critic, having fun and being ready to start/continue the working day.
Min. participants 6, max. participants 12. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.

This open super-elective runs four Thursdays 4th – 25th March 10.30 -11.30 am GMT
Open – A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.
NB: Our electives frequently sell out, but do not despair if this class has. You have not missed your shot. If enough people join the waiting list, we are often able to put the same class on a few days after or in parallel. So if you were excited, join up and we will be in touch.
