1)  Weekly Performative Well-Being & IwIP

What? Weekly IwIP practice sessions and a well-being support and discussion group work. We will practice IwIP and open improv inspired by IwIP with some of our favorite variations (VMTI, camera, audience, pairs) and new experiments. We will also have regular group discussions and exercises relating to performative well-being and performative being. If the group agrees, we will have a few public open sessions.

CORONA SPECIAL: If viral conditions mean we cannot meet in person, we will go virtual as we did last semester, since it worked well.  If we still can meet in person, but some people would prefer to participate virtually, they can – so a combo class of studio work and virtual participation.

Aimed for: Anyone interested in open improvisation, performance, well-being, IwIP.

Goals:

  • Dra­mat­ic play
  • Devel­op your per­form­ing self and per­for­ma­tive fitness
  • Explore per­for­ma­tive being
  • Cul­ti­vate per­son­al and group well-being
  • Devel­op IwIP prac­tice and impro­vi­sa­tion­al skills
  • Fun
