In this meet up group we will get together for improvisation workshops in New York City Area. Classes will be open to actors and non-actors, and will focus on a genius woman's improvisation technique; the grandmother of Improvisation; Viola Spolin. According to Spolin incorporating game playing into acting training will help actors to get out of their heads and release their creative free selves. So she created "Theater Games" which became the source of the improvisational comedy as we know today through improv groups, of TV shows like Saturday Night Live.
The meet up workshops will help us experience Spolin Games and her method to achieve physical awareness, spontaneity and ensemble building.
