Women’s Workshop: Dig a Little Deeper with Sally Hodgkiss

This workshop is one of many run by the Nursery to create an open and supportive creative space for female-identifying improvisers of all ages and experience levels who may, for whatever reason, feel they would benefit from an all-female class environment in which to learn and play! It’s a safe place to come and be bold and fearless and meet other dynamic women from across the city.

The classes run once a month, and they are stand alone, so you can book one or come along every time. Each workshop is taught by a different teacher and focuses on a specific area of improvisation, and we have some exciting people lined up over the coming months!

This month’s workshop is with Sally Hodgkiss and takes place on Sunday 20th May, 2-5 pm!

Dig a Little Deeper 
It can be easy when you’re improvising to just follow the fast laughs, but what happens if you allow yourself to dig a little deeper in your scenes? This fun and engaging workshop will help you learn to trust yourself and your scene partner and forge meaningful connections on stage (and off it too!) You will see that by allowing yourself to be a little vulnerable sometimes you can really find the truth in comedy* and the comedy in truth.
*as someone very wise once said (!)
