Open Space | Online Improv Jam

About this event

Every Wednesday, Kaivalya Plays hosts an open space to play improv games. No prior experience of theatre, improv or storytelling is needed... you just need to show up!

  • Date: Every Wednesday
  • Duration: 90 Minutes
  • Location: Zoom (you will receive the link on the day of the jam)
  • Time: 7PM to 8.30PM India Time (Please check timezone conversion for your local time)
  • Tickets: Free with prior registration

The last 30 minutes of all the sessions will be live-streamed to Kaivalya Plays's facebook page, participation is open for all.

These sessions are free of cost, on a registration-only basis. But we have also opened up a voluntary donation link for Open Space to keep expanding this initiative and making improv more accessible across the world.

ABOUT IMPROV THEATRE

Improv is a form of spontaneous storytelling where one uses suggestions from the audiences to create characters and scenes on the spot without a predetermined script. Open to folks from all walks of life, you don't need to be an actor or performer, just someone with a zeal for telling stories!

Our Open Space improv jam started in May 2020 and has since then seen participation from 1000+ individuals from over 15 countries.

ABOUT KAIVALYA PLAYS

Kaivalya Plays is a Delhi-based theatre group. Their artistic training is grounded in spontaneous improvisation, lying at the intersection of short-form improvisations (for performances and workshop) and applied improvisation (with a focus on mental healthcare, business, education, training). Their improv group CueLess improv was one Delhi's first improv teams and became the training ground for a generation of improv performers and heads of new teams. In late 2018, Kaivalya Plays created Unravel, an interactive theatre production produced under the Refunction theatre grant by the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan. The play brings conversations about mental health to the fore, with the ensemble using improv theatre and audience suggestions to devise the final performance on the spot. Their work has been featured in India Today, The Hindu, Indian Express, Financial Express among others. Since the lockdown, we have moved our improv practice entirely online. In the last few months, they have hosted 15 applied improv workshops, 22 open-space sessions, 5 online improv shows digitally – with a cumulative engagement of 2000+ individuals – and they are constantly figuring out newer formats to make improv more accessible and available.
