This workshop is now full
We all know these moments – somebody says something on stage and the audience goes silent with dread. Everyone knows that something inappropriate just happened. It might be an offensive phrase or just plain bad improv. The only clear thing is that somebody messed up. Now the question is – what do we do about it?
In this workshop we will create a safe space in which we can let these moments arise, then learn how to deal with them – by recontextualizing, doubling down, speaking honestly and finding creative ways to say both “yes” and “no”.
This is an intermediate/advanced workshop. This is a second offering of this workshop. Please only take one of the two workshops.
Taught by Itamar Karbian
I have been improvising for about 11 years and teaching improv for about 8. I’ve taught improv in improv schools and the Tel-Aviv based MOVE acting studio, as well as in corporate and private environments. I’ve coached teams for both short-form and long-form formats from beginner to performance level.
I am the founder and co-artistic director of Lamabati, one of the oldest performing groups in Israel, and was co-founder, co-artistic director, MC and coach of the Improleague, an Israeli initiative intended to provide performance opportunities for beginner improvisers.
I have travelled to perform all around Europe, including Finland, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Turkey, Greece, Estonia and Sweden.
