The IICV and Sébastien Hansen presents an intermediate level improv workshop:

## Let the scene paint you

You may know this feeling: Our characters - clothed in imaginary grey nondescript clothing - are standing in a grey generic lifeless box, telling stories that somehow miss the spark of life. It all feels pale and lacks depth.

How great would it be to let the surroundings tell a story about our characters and give the audience a chance to immerse themselves deeply into the world we are opening for them?

During the workshop we will start looking into how the surroundings of our characters have an influence on what the audience will see, how they perceive our characters and the stories we tell. We will discover how a slight change in the description of our characters makes them much more complex and gives them a depth that we simply cannot reach if we only have them go through dia- and monologues.

We will use scene painting, character painting and some object work as tools to tell stories within stories.

The lovingly re-glued vase speaks volumes and shows its importance.
The slightly discoloured patch of wood on the floor has a history waiting to be discovered.
And why does Mary ALWAYS wear a dried white flower on her hat?

Lets find out together and give our worlds more color.
