About the Event - Please read

A workshop in comedy and improvisation, inspired by research around comedy improv as a tool for reducing social anxiety.

This workshop suitable for anyone aged 16+ No experience needed.

About your workshop leader:

Tom Roden is one half of dance-comedy duo New Art Club, and has been bringing his unique hilarity to the stage since 1994. Tom has created, directed and performed internationally - on stages, at festivals and on television.

During the workshop Tom will guide us through spoken word and movement exercises that allow ourselves to be open, honest, silly and courageous. We will look at how comedy can help us speak to ourselves and others with honesty, clarity and passion. 

We will consider the mental health benefits of devising and performing comedy and building confidence by taking a brave leap outside our comfort zones - you’ll be in safe hands and good company!
