Listen or die How to fine tune your internal antenna & make your impros look rehearsed.

Active listening is not a skill we are born with, but without a doubt, it’s worth it’s weight in gold when clowning. Clowns who listen to each other nourish each other’s creativity, they respect each other’s rhythms and support each other’s proposals. They can build on what comes up and create a scene that is both logical, seamless and hilarious. And clowns who listen to their audience know when to expand on a proposal, or shorten it, or completely change tack. They are able to rapidly regenerate an interest in their performance and keep their audience continually entertained. In this Masterclass, we’ll look at the reasons you may be failing to listen, the difficulites that prove it, and the ways in which you can up level your capacity to sense, accept and play with everything that occurs.

During the workshop we will not be able to help you if you have technical problems, that's why...
  • If you have never used Zoom, do a test video conference with a friend or family member.
  • Also check the audio. Zoom has allows you to check the audio. By clicking on the arrow next to the Zoom microphone button, a menu will open. Look for the "Test audio" section.
  • Use this link to find all kinds of help on how to use Zoom.
Some tips to optimise your internet connection
  • If you can connect by cable, it will be better than via wifi.
  • Before the start of the workshop, check that your internet connection works well. Restarting the router by unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds usually increases the speed if you haven't restarted it for a while.
  • Disconnect the Wi-Fi from all your other devices (mobiles, tablets, tv's, etc.)
  • Ask the people who live with you not to use the internet during the workshop hours, especially Netflix, YouTube and the like.
