In improvisation we aspire to be truthful and to leap joyfully into ambiguity. Who knows what’s going to happen next? When we ground ourselves in the moment and deal with what is actually happening with humor and curiosity we can learn to thrive in the chaos. This 90-minute workshop will use improvisation techniques to help us embrace uncertainty and collaborate with like-minded souls. Please join Jim Robinson and Dreamland Arts for this pay-what-you-wish Zoom event. You can stay home AND join us at Dreamland. Sounds perfect!

Jim Robinson has a dual career in improvisation and psychology. He’s an alumnus of the Brave New Workshop, the Off-Beat Comedy Club onboard the Disney Magic, and is co-founder of Table Salt Productions, a local theater company dedicated to producing original works in the Twin Cities. Jim has also taught psychology at St. Catherine University and at the University of St. Thomas. He hails from Riverside, California.

In improvisation we let go of expectations around creativity and, instead, discover what’s waiting for us in the very moment! When we ground ourselves in the moment and connect with one another we need look no further for inspiration and energy. This hour-long workshop will use improv techniques to help us inhabit the moment and, most importantly, have fun doing so.
