This event is organized and presented by Tongue & Groove Spontaneous Theater.

Improvisers know that creating something out of nothing is a process of discovery, not invention.  
Being Present. Being open to outcome. Releasing internal scripts.  Being comfortable in the unknown. Accepting change. Flexibility in the face of disruption. Listening.
These are the skills of the improviser.  And they can be learned and applied to every aspect of work and life.

Come play in the world of improv and practice these skills! The workshop is designed to create a safe, comfortable environment in which you can release fear and explore.  No one is singled out — the activities are collaborative and supportive.  This is not about performing — it’s about learning the skills that performers use, and applying them to your own needs.  No experience necessary; Design Thinkers, Artists, and the Improv-curious are all encouraged to play.

This event is linked to Tongue & Groove's performance 'BY DESIGN.' Combine both the workshop and a performance for only $25! Purchase a ticket to the show and receive a discount code to use when purchasing the workshop. 

This workshop is taught by Tongue & Groove Spontaneous Theater’s Artistic Director Bobbi Block; Tongue & Groove performs BY DESIGN on Oct 13 @ 8pm and Oct 14 @ 4pm: $18.   Buy both a show and the workshop together:  $25
