Event Details

Where does a story come from? When does it start? How are we sucked in with the characters to follow the story? The movies of the Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki are fascinating and completely immersive, and yet very often the character does mostly mundane activities and actions.

This workshop will explore the birth of a story, its starting point and the spark that lit the fire of the audience’s imagination. Through visual character building and techniques used in the movies of the master, you will learn to not worry much about the story in order to end up telling better tales. Let go of the pressure to be a brilliant storyteller, the story is already happening!


(Monday) 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST


Gael Doorneweerd-Perry has practiced improv for about 12 years in Strasbourg and he is member and co-founder of La Carpe Haute. He’s also co-founder of the SIN, an international network of improvisers in Europe.

He is travelling and created formats to continue to explore and share, including with his partner on and off-stage, Laura Doorneweerd-Perry. They are going on a year of work around the world to teach and perform their show Object of Affection in 2019-2020.

Gael teaches improv and loves it! He travelled in Europe and over during the past few years, performing and teaching, and found a thousand ways to improvise. His dream is to combine it to be a multifaceted cristal of improv! Now, he shares this way of acting around the world, physical and noisy, kind and silly, emotive and crazy.
