About this event

Members of the following affinity groups are welcome to attend this session: Black, Indigenous, Asian, and People of Colour. Allies from other affinity groups are encouraged to show support by signal-boosting the workshop on social media.

When you aren't performing in your own affinity group, situations sometimes arise that make it difficult to want to share your creative voice or take your space. It might be a microaggression, or outright attempts to silence you or to make you uncomfortable enough to leave, or a lack of shared reference. In this workshop, we'll reforge our boundaries by examining and testing the intentions and impacts of three fundamental improv tenets:

  • Saying Yes
  • Statements Only
  • Sharing Focus

In fact, we're going to twist them up to ensure we get into and play with John Lewis' “good trouble."

Velvet Wells is a sought-out facilitator, having lead workshops for international improvisational theatres (i.e., Black Improv Alliance, The Nursery Theatre, Highwire Improv, Oakville Improv Theatre Company, Montreal Improv), festivals (i.e., Everybody Get In Here Festival, Edinburgh International Improv Festival, Vintage Improv Festival), and community organizations (i.e., Bright Futures, Art Gallery of Mississauga, Guelph Black Heritage Society, Guelph Pride).

This Open elective runs Sunday Oct. 31, 5.00-7.30 pm UK Timezone.

Open A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.
