About the event

Improv is not just an acting tool, but a tool that can help you succeed in life!

Unlike stand-up, improvisation is theatre without a script. We'll help you think on the spot and build your confidence in a friendly, fun and supportive space where you're free to play and be yourself. Over the three-hour workshop, you'll be collaborating, generating ideas, listening and taking part in character-work, scene-work, improv-games and more!

Join us for an interactive session that's sure to stretch your imagination and spark spontaneity as you develop core skills.

There is no pre-requisite for this session and anyone can join in - no previous experience of improv, acting or comedy needed. All you'll need is a sense of fun and curiosity.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

Ayesha Tariq is a multidisciplinary artist and a Penguin published author and illustrator of the graphic novel Sarah: The Suppressed Anger of the Pakistani Obedient Daughter. Her journey with improv started in 2014 as a participant of a workshop and then led on to be a part of a long-form improv troupe, The Platoon. Soon she explored directing within the troupe and outside, to various age groups. She has also performed in various shows, independently and with troupes. Improv not only helped her with thinking on the spot but also with anxiety, expression, communication and creativity, not just on stage but also in life and other practices. She is currently teaching improv at Cedar School.
