Workshop: Il teatro di improvvisazione



A look at the “teatro d’improvvisazione” open to all those who want to approach this form of impromptu and creative theater. Whether you are professional or curious, you will experience what it means to improvise, becoming authors and directors of yourself within a group that builds together. The workshop will aim to develop creativity, communication skills, listening skills and integration with the group. Florentine by birth with an Armenian background, Michaël Alexanian approaches the theater in the high school period. A few years later, in Lausanne (CH), Michaël joins an improvisation theater company and has never stopped nurturing his passion for this form of art. He will guide us through this short journey. No acting experience is required: the workshop is open to all. Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone and experiment with your Italian? Pre-registration required!
