NU College of Engineering and the Department of Theatre (CAMD) are excited to host in-person creative expression workshops that help foster confidence building, reflexivity, collaboration and more.
Theatre-based improvisation provides a playful environment in which to discover, to understand and to maximize the ways in which we interact, communicate and collaborate with others. Above all, Improvisation helps us embrace failure as the only possible way towards real success.
Participants will be presented with a variety of exercises that explore community and team building, spatial awareness, mental agility, status, adaptability, risk taking, intuition, physical presence and relaxation.
The ultimate goal is for participants to experience more confidence in their ability to command the attention of an audience, large or small, and to be able to deepen their ability to collaborate effectively.
After participating in the series, team members may be able to:
· Recognize and quickly adapt how they present themselves to others;
· Read situations accurately, practicing critical observation skills;
· React to unexpected situations with confidence and agility;
· Listen more deeply to others;
· Find creative resolutions to improvised conflicts.
INSTRUCTOR: Jesse Hinson, Associate Teaching Professor of Theatre
