I facilitate workshops, for individuals or organizations, introducing them to these principles, tools etc. via solo, paired or group exercises, activities and games. Participants of workshops are able to integrate these principles; skills etc. into their daily lives. Personal development, team building, creativity, innovation and wellbeing are some of their areas that benefit from learning theatrical improvisation methods.
Improvisation exemplifies that creativity happens collaboratively by using the principle of short turn-taking between individuals in a group. In a positive atmosphere everyone is encouraged to contribute. Vulnerability, fear, suspicion and anxiety are replaced with focus, creativity and sense of collaboration. This approach allows individuals, groups and organizations to release their creative potential and overtime increase their confidence.
