Online Improv Elective: “French Baguettes and Malay Pulled Tea”
Level: ExperiencedThe world is a cauldron of inspiration for improv. We come from different places with rich stories to tell. Yet we don’t celebrate
The world is a cauldron of inspiration for improv. We come from different places with rich stories to tell. Yet we don’t celebrate them enough! These little details often bring rich textures and inspire you to new scenes. Improv is bringing out stories you have not played before.
There’s never been a better time to hear stories from Western and Eastern culture. But how do you use your culture? How do you treat others and play them respectfully?
In this workshop, we will share our stories and connect as humans around a campfire. You’ll get to appreciate the world’s many cultures and get a moment to step into another person’s sandals. And you’ll be happy with the wonderful mosaic that is you.
● How to bring your culture onstage
● How to be respectful and fun at the same time
● How to not use stereotypes
