Sharing Zoom Games, Tips, Exercises and Improvisations
Monday 13th July
1.00 - 3.00pm
In June David Furlong ran a session providing a playful opportunity to share games and exercises as well as share tips and experiences over Zoom. This is another chance to come together exchange and play.
The first half of the session will explore warm-up and getting- to-know-one-another type games adapted for an online workshop environment.
The second half of the session will focus on improvisation and making. This could range from theatre sport type exercises to all kinds of devising/improvising techniques that you want to try and adapt to Zoom or that you’ve already improved.
The last section of the session will be a space to talk a little bit about your experiences. It will be a safe space to discover ways in which other theatre-makers keep playing and practicing online.
The session will be as practical as possible so to fully participate it would be appreciated if you would find a way to have your laptop/device/webcam at chest height, so as to be able to stand-up and move about.
Please click the sign-up button above to let us know you plan to attend so we can email Zoom details to you the day before.
If you have access requirements please let us know.
