Presence, Play and Pivot Master Class

In this masterclass Anděl will take her 21 years of experience improvising professionally and work. you. out. She will focus on who you are, what you bring to the table and how you can be flexible without losing yourself. She’ll use her well of experience in both short and long form, theatre, sketch, solo character and clown work to allow you to step outside your comfort zone while resting in your abilities and solidifying your point of view. Playing with the rules and structures you’ll leave this workshop with a few new tools, the ability to be playful and even more a grasp of what it is that makes YOU special as an improviser and an artist. It will be a mix of mind/body connection, movement/mischief and improvisation. Bring Water. There will be Sweat.
