Luke Sorba and Pippa Evans – Effective Communication Through Improvisation

Luke & Pippa will present an entertaining and interactive demonstration of the ingredients of communication that lead not only to hugely impressive improvisation but also facilitate open thinking and creative choices.

Their presentation will include off-stage participation – the audience calling out suggestions for the improvisers to incorporate; plus on-stage volunteers inter-acting with the improvisers in a safe and simple way e.g. physically moving them at random, contributing spontaneous single words.

There is no expectation or need for the volunteers to be funny!
