What are the stories behind the bad, and badass women of history? And how can we take them as inspiration for scenes?
This is the starting point for the workshop ‘The Scandalous Women of History’, inspired by the improv format developed and played by Kiki Hohnen & Laura Doorneweerd-Perry.
Using astounding true stories from history, you will learn how to play scenes that are meaningful, or fun, or both. We will cover talking scenes, and silent scenes set to music.
You will also learn how to set up these scenes for yourself and others. The crafting of a setup is a true director’s skill, and a fun challenge for players with experience. I will teach you how to translate inspiring stories into ‘what to tell improvisers so they cannot wait to start playing’.
The course includes some research of a few scandalous women of history. If you are anything like me, you will consider this the best homework you ever got.
The participants in this workshop will be showcasing what they learned Wednesday 26-1-2022, before the main shows.
