A youth improv workshop at New Zealand Improv Festival!
This Youth workshop is aimed at players of all experience levels, aged 11- 17. It is an introduction to the technique of active listening. You have the opportunity to practise being the moment, connecting with a scene partner, and listening beyond the words.
