Viola Spolin’s Theater Games launched the American improvisational theater movement and changed the way acting is taught. Her work has influenced generations of actors and educators. In the workshop with sidecoach Aretha Sills, we’ll explore the groundbreaking exercises and theatrical concepts found in Improvisation for the Theater with an emphasis on the philosophies of legendary improvisation innovators Viola Spolin and Paul Sills, and on applying Spolin’s meditative methods to your work in any artistic discipline. Actors, educators, directors, improvisers, and those who wish to experience more play in their daily lives are invited to attend.
