Nicholas Kessler of The Liberators and Twist Your Dickens teaches this uproarious, immersive workshop on the fundamentals of improvisation. This workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to feel the rush that comes from jumping into the unknown onstage. Chock-full of simple take-away lessons, this energizing and lighthearted workshop focuses on accepting the best of what’s right in front of you, finding humor without jokes, and what to do when your mind goes “blank.” Whether you’ve spent most of your time on the stage or in the audience, this fun and inspiring workshop will leave you feeling bolder and more aware.
