About the Event

Level up your physical improv skills! In this short, beginner level workshop, you’ll learn some easy-to-practice techniques for object work, environment, and physicality. Topics we’ll explore include performing realistic activities, making discoveries from the environment, playing safely, and how to turn the stage into your playground. You don’t have to be a mime or acrobat, and you don’t have to change how you improvise. Physical improv is a multiplier that makes your improv more interesting, immersive, and FUN!  

Following the workshop, limited copies of The Improv Illusionist book will be available for purchase for €20 (cash only please). Reading the book is NOT required for this class.  

From Toronto, Ontario, Canada, DAVID RAITT has been performing and teaching improv for over 25 years. He is an alumnus of The Second City Canadian National Touring Company and joined the Mainstage for several extended ensemble contracts. He was also on the Second City Training Centre Education faculty for 17 years.  

Dave especially loves physical comedy and offers specialty workshops in object work, environment, and physicality in performance. He is the curator of Improv Illusionist, a website and monthly newsletter for physical improv instruction and coaching. The Improv Illusionist book was published by Bloomsbury/Methuen Drama in August 2023. More info at https://improvillusionist.com.
