Learn improv from its mother; Viola Spolin!spolin2

In these classes we explore Viola Spolin’s improvisation technique following her book; Improvisation for The Theater. Spolin games are fun, inclusive and open to both actors and non-actors. Her approach is about releasing one’s creativity through spontaneity and sense of game playing. Her work is used by actors, writers, directors, teachers, several others working to improve their communication skills. Read more about Viola Spolin : http://www.violaspolin.org/bio/

EGE MALTEPEClasses are led by Ege Maltepe who is 
the Turkish translator of Spolin’s seminal book; Improvisation for The Theater.

Maltepe often travels to her home country, Turkey to lead workshops, in the meantime she’s gathering a performance group in New York.
