Break Sh*t and de-program your fears - WS 15
The world has become smaller and improv arenas are getting more and more diverse. While this is a fantastic thing, there is always that initial hesitation and self-doubt when playing with people SO different from yourself. In this workshop, Bala will help you reconnect with your innate courageous self and play from the heart, making you the improviser who can play with anyone AND the improviser everyone wants to play with.
Together with Bala, we will discover how to feel more comfortable on stage and discover some of our biggest improv fears. Who am I on stage and how do I feel more comfortable? How can I embrace my superpower and still be the best stage partner ever? Let's try this out, learn from each other and just break with some sh*t.
Bala is an improviser from Bangalore, India. She got her first taste of improvisation when she was in the US for grad school. When she returned to India, she began improvising and teaching with Improv Comedy Bangalore, one of India's few improv companies. She is a co-founder of The Adamant Eves, India's first and only all-women improv team. Her personal philosophy is that as an improviser (or even as a human being), all you need is creativity applied with awareness. She loves teaching using a mix of themes like music, movement, philosophy, and a mix of eastern spiritual traditions - all tools that help her show up as her best self, on and off-stage
