Yes, and .....

August saw an energised and enthusiastic group join the first of our 2 day workshops for 2016 - Improv and Psychodrama - for some spontaneity training through exploration and play.

Co-group-leader Peter Hall lead us through a range of Improv exercises in which we learnt about applying core principles such as saying 'yes', building on an offer 'yes, and...' and listening & responding, to create a living world in the moment. 

The exercises warmed us up to our own physical presence and ourselves in relationship with others. Our spontaneity and imagination was most certainly tested and stretched in multiple directions!

The warm ups developed through the exercises and group discussion were subsequently explored in action, through psychodramatic enactments produced by Peter's co-leader, Rollo Browne.

So there was lots of learning and insight. Yes! And ...... we laughed and laughed and laughed. Bringing our spontaneity and imagination into play produced many laugh out loud moments. 

A great time was had by all.
