Unhooked!
An online evening of introductory improvisation on Zoom with Jim Robinson

Spring has sprung. Like a coil. A coil that circles endlessly. Can we let go of repetitive thoughts? Stories with tired plots? Demands on the future? In improv we say, “let go of your story and be in the moment!” Let’s get together and give it a go. This 90-minute online workshop will use improv techniques to help us have fun without insisting on perfection. Please join Jim Robinson and Dreamland Arts for this pay-what-you-wish Zoom event. You can stay safe AND join us at Dreamland Arts. Sounds perfect, or at least pretty good!

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 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!
