Improv Theater Games
February 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am0.00$
Theater Games are exercises that let your playfulness emerge. Games are easy to learn and fun to play without any reason other than to have a good time. The pace will be geared to the comfort level of the class. This two-session workshop includes a number of theater games developed by Viola Spolin, whose work is recognized for promoting spontaneity, awareness, and focus in actors. If you are a budding improviser, each game can be used to build your improv muscles. Important note: While rests and breaks are built into the workshop, you will be physically active, frequently alternating between standing and sitting, plus engaging in some physical movement. Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and dress for ease of movement. Instructor Carolyn Cole performs long-form improv as a “Lunatic” at Moonlight Stage Company in Raleigh. She also teaches improv at the Durham Arts Council. Register for the course by Tuesday, February 7. Class size is limited to 14. A minimum of 8 participants is necessary to proceed with the class. The course is co-sponsored with OLLI at Duke. The workshop is free.
