Something from Nothing
Presented by: damian synadinos
Improv(isational) theater is, essentially, making something from nothing - performers create and perform shows spontaneously, without a script, props, or costumes. But, to be successful at improv, you should learn, practice, and use a few, fundamental improv "rules" - principles and skills that are as useful on stage as they are at play, in school, and with life.
"Hank and Stella in Something from Nothing" is a children's storybook - written in rhyme with bright illustrations- that introduces kids to improv and a few improv "rules" to help them develop their imaginations and confidence, play cooperatively and collaboratively, and understand the value and benefits of practice and diversity.
In this session, I read and discuss the book, and then play a few improv games that are safe, fun, age-appropriate, and demonstrate the ideas in the book.
Join us for some improv, and laugh while you learn!
