OIF Workshop: Phurious Physicality (with Isaac Kessler)
2pm to 4:30 pm
Saturday, Feb 29
Arts Court Theatre
We’ve all been there. That feeling of emptiness on stage; when a “yes and” feels more like a “please end this now”. Eff that. With an emphasis on clowning techniques, this workshop will focus on reigniting our love of improvisation through physicality and play. Fun is a technique, and Play is a muscle… so let’s get swole!
