Do the Fun Idea with Annie Barry
Remember when you didn't know any of the rules of improv? Tap into that energy again and trust that unleashing your full creativity will lead to joyful improv.
As children we played pirates and mermaids, knights on extraordinary quests. Fun ideas that had high stakes and existed in the world of the fantastical. Too often in our improv we stay within the confines of our everyday world because of fear.
This workshop will encourage your childlike spirit of play. We will relish in the fun choices we can make, such as doing a scene as a lightbulb or two boxes of hamburger helper on the shelf. Come ready to play pretend like a child on the playground, free of judgement and full of joy.
