Improvisation and Storytelling Workshop in Oulu

Improvisation and Storytelling

Walk the  boundaries of where improvisation and storytelling meet. We will
explore the structure of stories, make stories as a group, play with
content, physicality, music and silence. We will explore use of the space
to tell a story, using techniques such as viewpoints and freeform. We will
explore both performance improvisation as well as improv for composition.
Expect discovery and fun!
