NON-BINARY IMPROV WORKSHOP
What would an entirely non-binary improv space feel like? Let's find out together!
Don't worry if you missed the first session! Invi Brenna will be leading us through an exploration of only playing characters and situations you're 100% enthusiastically on board with.
Come learn how to be the best scene partner you can be by knowing and looking after your own needs and boundaries! Or, just come to have fun in a relaxed environment where you're not "the token one", and nobody's going to think twice about your pronouns.
Note that for this workshop there's no such thing as "not non-binary enough" or "not the right kind of non-binary". It is a wide, wide umbrella term with room for all kinds of identities from all kinds of cultures. And whether you've known your whole life, or you've only just had the time to think about your gender recently, whether you've got a lot of gender in you or none at all, you're welcome here.
[NOT YET SCHEDULED -- TBD]
==TEACHER BIO
Invi Brenna has been doing Improv for a decade now, and they have a funny story about how they've been gender non-conforming since the day they were born. Originally from Norway, they moved to the UK to study all things theatre nine years ago. In the half a decade since graduating, they've directed, produced and/or acted in a variety of professional shows both scripted and unscripted. They like their Improv like they like their life: Full of genuine human connection. It's more fun that way.
