Join theatre artists Johanna Bundon and Jayden Pfeifer as we explore the skills of improvisation! Exercise your improv muscles by practicing availability, listening, accepting, supporting, and creative expression in a supportive group environment.
This is a physical workshop that takes an embodied approach to learning, prioritizing the felt-experience of harnessing one’s moment to moment impulses through body, breath, and gesture.
Thank you to Plainsview School, Regina for hosting these broadcasts.
