    Explore Creativity through Improvisation

    September 13th 2009 – 10am to 5pm – Kinsale Pottery & Arts Centre
    Led by: Marcus Bale

    This dynamic workshop will focus on the element of Creativity in Improvisation. Through exercises, drama games and improvised situations we will learn how to express our creativity through action.

    Drama improvisation uses exercises that deal with the imagination in a conscious and in a subconscious level, and develops the awareness of the here and the now.

    This workshop will help its participants to trigger their creative potential, using Verbal & Physical Storytelling, Image Theatre (Theatre of the Oppressed), Viewpoints and other interesting techniques based on Improvisation.

    Exercising elements such as intuition, trust, spontaneity and through the use of the body, our voice and our mind we will explore and expand our creativity.
