The ISC Improvisation Workshop: For the ISC to create brand new plays on the spot, its members must be masters of spontaneous group work. In the ISC's Improvisation Workshop, students will be exposed to the main principles of group improvisation. Students will participate in various exercises that emphasize the importance of active listening, support, working as a team, confidence, and creativity. This workshop is perfect for theatre classes, improv groups, community events, or anyone at all! Join the guys on stage for this 90 minute workshop.
