Guest Workshop: Hang Your Judge

This workshop centers on the “inner judge” that sits on our shoulder and, while making a serious face, constantly tells us we aren’t smart, funny or original enough.

The purpose of this workshop is to help you learn how to handle your inner judge. Using highly practical tools, we will learn how to silence our inner judge when needed – and when to pay attention to what he/she has to say. This workshop will help you to get out of your head and be free in your improv.

This workshop is for beginner to intermediate players. You should have completed minimum Intro to Improv Part 1 & 2, or have minimum 20 hours of improv experience. If you have questions about your level, contact jess@kinkonauts.com.

Taught by Hila Di Castro

I am an actress, improviser and teacher based in Israel. Since graduating from Acting Studio in 2002, I have acted in diverse theater, film and television productions in Israel (including one super cool horror movie).

Upon discovering the world of improvisation in 2005, I have performed with several improv groups: Improline, komikaza, provisori and an all-woman ensemble named Anna’s Friends.

I am a member and a co-artistic director of LAMABATI, one of the leading improv groups in Israel. We perform throughout Israel and festivals all over the world.

I perform, teach and instruct improv around the world, including festivals (FiiF2016, Tilt2016, THE BIG IF 2018) and private groups (Belgium, Germany, Latvia and more). I also officiated improv competitions in Israel, including Israel’s 2015 National Improv Championship.

I teach acting and improvisation since 2010. My teaching spans acting schools, high schools, private groups and a theatre school for orthodox Jews. I also coach several improv troupes, including an all-orthodox women’s group.

I am the co-founder and the artistic director of “20,000 Words”, an improv performance and workshop that teaches and discusses gender equality throughout Israel.

I am an actress and trainer at D-Theatro, a company that utilizes theatre and improv mediums to provide indoor training and coaching workshops to diverse organizations, with the goal of enhancing inter-personal communication and soft skills. I am the artistic director of “Not Just for Actors”, an improvised performance created by D-Theatro, which takes audience participation to the limit.
