‘I haven’t enjoyed a class so much before. It was wonderful.’– Morweena 


The “games” and activities were so much fun and a great way to learn that when on the spot, something WILL come! The facilitators were so encouraging and warm and the group was lovely too. I had a great time and have been consciously keeping some of the techniques in mind every single day since! – Natalia

Ever wished you could be calm and coherent, or more creative, in how you respond to the unplanned and unexpected moments in your life? Did you know that improvisation isn’t about comedy, it’s about reacting — being focused and present in the moment at a very high level. And did you know that people worldwide are partnering with improvisational performers to learn the skills to enable them to be more flexible, adapt to unforeseen situations, and develop an authentic response. The School of Playback Theatre is offering this short and punchy training program specifically for you to find ways to manage your way through ‘The Uncertainty of the Unplanned Moment’. During the program, we will identify the specific skills you personally need to manage yourself better in that moment. We will look at how to apply these skills to be more flexible, authentic and spontaneous, and we will have fun doing it!


‘This workshop is one of the most important learning experiences of my life: I’ve never managed to develop such trust in a process or a group so immediately before! The facilitators knew how to provide the exact steps necessary for us to develop the skills required to move on to the next stage of learning. I looked forward eagerly to each part of the workshop and was sorry when it was finished. I felt so freed to play with the moment that I realised that there was no going back from what I’d learnt‘ – Barbara 2015
