Facilitated by Stacy DeZutter (Millsaps), Jennifer Goff (Centre), Lavinia Roberts (Hendrix) and Elyzabeth Wilder (Sewanee)
Successful improvisation depends on agreement, collaboration, and mindful listening. In this playful and highly interactive workshop participants will engage in a variety of exercises that focus on active listening. In improv, actors must be present and in-the-moment, ready to both give and receive openly and organically.
Participants will learn the rules of improv before engaging in three improv exercises that focus specifically on active listening and working collaboratively. We will close the workshop with an open dialogue about the practical applications of the form and how it aids in collaboration, agreement, and mindful listening, as well as how these skills translate to the classroom and professional life.
