About the instructor;
Ege Maltepe is an actress, playwright, director and educator from Istanbul, currently residing in New York City. Apart from her work as a theater artist, since 2009 she’s working on spreading Spolin Improvisation as an acting technique in Turkey, under the roof of SPOLIN-IST, an organization she founded with her classical musician husband Emir Gamsizoglu. Apart from the workshops that she’s organizing periodically, she’s working on gathering an ensemble that will create projects using Viola Spolin’s technique. Recently Maltepe started to open Spolin Workshops in New York City as well.

Ege is a graduate of The New Actors Workshops/Antioch McGregor‘s Master of Arts program where she worked with legendary directors and teachers like Mike Nichols and George Morrison. After her graduation she worked as an assistant teacher for Movement Improvisation Classes and worked as a stage manager of director Carol Sills (Viola Spolin's daughter-in-law and the editor of Spolin books). She came to New York on a  Fulbright Scholarship after finishing her Bachelor of Arts in Bilkent University’s Acting Department. www.egemaltepe.com
