About the Event

Improv is a on the spot performance artform that along with creative thinking also involves critical thinking be it acknowledging premises put forth by others or justifying offers presented in a scene or even using evidence to heighten the scene and coming to a common ground to build on each other's ideas.


It is an open to all workshop be it that you are an experienced improviser or trying improv for the very first time you are welcome to participate.


In this workshop we are going to understand the structure of an argument, create linkage between our claims and evidences as well as spot assumptions in our dialogues, develop spontaneity in replies as well as understand inner conflicts and dilemmas and do burden exercises to understand the 'why' question for reasoning.


The session will try to assist in developing our thought process through improv scenes as well as make us think critically and evaluate rationally ideas in our general life.
