Spontaneous Play and Creativity with Colombian Improv Pioneer
- December 04, 2021
- 4PM - 5:15PM ET
Live from Bogota, Colombia
As the year draws to a close and seasonal celebrations start ramping up, what better way to shake off the year and PLAY. Join improv pioneer, Gigio, on Saturday December 4th at 4PM EST for a session on spontaneous play and creativity through improv. Invite family, friends or colleagues to play too.
Theater improv is a game of spontaneity and collective creativity. It holds many rich life lessons to boost confidence, improve quicker reaction, help flexibility, and build camaraderie & teamwork. Improvisors learn to pay attention to their impulses at any given time. That’s why being present in the here and now — to our body, mind, and everything surrounding us — is important to be able to find and use what’s available to us. Of course, this is not only true for improvisation, but for life itself!
When we've had this session in the past, our cheeks were sore from laughing together, so you can expect nothing less this time. The only requirement is willingness to play! Are you ready?
If you are not in EST time zone, be sure to convert the time.
How to join
We'll be hosting this VAWAA Online on Zoom. We'll send link and details to join via email 1 day and again 1 hour before it begins.
With a deep passion for theatrical improvisation, Gigio has been a pioneer of improv in Colombia, Peru and Puerto Rico. Rather than simply working with actors, he loves developing new artistic processes in the performing arts to help stimulate personal growth in anyone keen to try. In addition to improv, he also adores clowning. After all, as Gigio says, "The most noble art is to make others happy." Now he teaches and shares this passion with people from different parts of the world, helping others develop their own form of creative expression through performance.

"Virtual improv with Gigio was so amazing, such a fun and playful way to start the weekend! Virtual format totally worked and Gigio selected the games thoughtfully so we were all able to play despite limitations. Wish we kept going, the hour flew by very quickly, and hope Gigio hosts another one!" - Lina
"Interactions with stranger was great" - Cristina
