Improv Workshop with PillowTalk
Improv Workshop with PillowTalk: Pay What You Can
Improvisation is for everyone! Whether you’re a professional comedian/actor wanting to add a new string to your bow, or a first time performer, improv can help you think quicker, enjoy messing up and flex those creative muscles. The fundamental skills have been adopted in countless different sectors; from business and healthcare, to education and entertainment. Come along and learn something new whilst having a giggle!
PillowTalk Theatre makes work for stage, page and communities that breaks rules, makes a mess and stands out. They have had sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe with clown duo Jam Sandwich and late-night cult cabaret The Wonder Jam. They’ve been running workshops on improvisation for almost 8 years, and have taught individuals, businesses, community groups and youth theatres including a monthly workshop at the BBC. PillowTalk Theatre is Jonathan Oldfield (winner of the Patricia Routledge Award 2019, Carleton Hobbs Award Finalist in 2019, winner of The Newton Blick Award for Versatility 2019) and Lorna Rose Treen (winner of the BBC Grace Wyndham Trust Award, graduate of Soho Plus Lab, and one of the Raze Collective’s 2021 Raze Your Profile).
They will be debuting their latest improv show Criminally Untrue: an improvised true crime documentary at Stanley Arts on Friday January 21st at 7.30pm before taking it to VAULT Festival on the 3rd and 4th March 2022.
