As human beings, we tend to get caught up in the same kind of situations, behaviours or, some may even dare to say stories. We then spend quite some time analyzing all the factors that led us to that same spot we keep returning to. If we translate this into a performative context, as improvisers we are constantly trying to establish patterns in order to make our lives on stage easier. We embrace them, happy to have something to play with. Happy to use the safety net they bring in a scene. But! Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? As we get stuck in life we get stuck on stage. Our patterns become our frustrations and in some cases, are preventing the performer to grow and explore more. In the workshop we will strive to overcome or at least acknowledge the patterns that we bring into the group and the patterns that the group is producing as a collective. We will then try to break, transform or indulge in these patterns, celebrate them and play with them. The aim of the workshop is to give you tools on how to look for patterns on an individual and collective level.
