(Mostly) Silent Scenes
What happens if the first few minutes happen in total silence? Not being able to define the who/what/where verbally forces us to connect in a deeper way and be much more physical on stage. In this workshop we experiment with how long we can stay silent for by relying on our non-verbal skills, on emoting, and on connecting with our fellow players.
About the Instructor:
Kiki Hohnen has taught improv for over a decade, both as an improv coach to a number of groups, and as a corporate trainer for Amsterdam's Boom Chicago. Her improv journey began in 2004 when an innocent birthday gift of a basic improv course bloomed into a full-on love affair with the art form. She also uses her background as a psychologist to teach applied improv to a range of groups: people with aphasia, increasing their non-verbal communication, children with autism, as a way to help them express themselves. She has worked as a dating coach, drawing on improv exercises to help people be more playful and open in their interactions.
Kiki enjoys using psychological theory to build three-dimensional characters, and gets a kick out of watching students bring these characters to life on stage. Kiki performs the Ferocious Four, who improvise action comedies with an all-female cast, with Themeprov at Amsterdam's beloved Mezrab venue. She was born in Australia, grew up there, Sri Lanka and Belgium, and has lived for most of her life in Amsterdam.
