ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Working with a large group of performers. whilst fun, can be limiting. Working with one other person can allow you to find your voice and build rapport with a partner to build a “sixth sense” with each other and create compelling shows.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Nasir’s first step into improv came by signing up for a 2 day workshop in 2010 in Mumbai. It's been 11 years since that day and he has professionally been performing, teaching and directing improv properties in India. In 2015, Nasir co-founded Improv Comedy Bangalore (ICB) which became India’s most sought-after improv company and headed it for 5 years. He was responsible for creating a culture of performance and appreciation for the art of improv in the city of Bangalore, India. In 2018, Nasir founded and directed India’s first and only improv international festival – the Bengaluru Improv Fest with participation from over 15 countries and 100 artists. Nasir’s improv teaching guides a participant into gaining insight in different disciplines namely performance, acting, storytelling, comedy, social relationships and self-growth.
ABOUT KAIVALYA PLAYS
Kaivalya Plays is an Indian performing arts and production organization, led by Varoon P. Anand as Artistic Director and Gaurav Singh Nijjer as General Manager. Their artistic training is grounded in spontaneous improvisation, lying at the intersection of short-form improvisations (for performances and workshop) and applied improvisation (with a focus on mental healthcare, business, education, training). Their improv group CueLess improv was one of Delhi's first improv teams and became the training ground for a generation of improv performers and heads of new teams. Kaivalya Plays' original play 'Unravel' uses improvisational theatre techniques to drive conversations about mental health. Their innovative use of the improv methodology spans different sectors – driving safety conversations in the performing arts, expanding mental health dialogue through their 'Improv for Wellness' program, fostering a global community with their 'Open Space' improv jam, supporting foreign language learning with their 'Improv for Languages' programs in Hindi, Spanish and Punjabi as well as furthering improv as an art form with the multilingual 'India Improv Ensemble' and 'India Improv Sxene' that puts the spotlight on the Indian improvisational theatre community. They are committed to finding new formats and applications to make improv accessible and available to a wider audience.
