In her informal and humorous book, the author leads eight members of a Toronto tech firm through exercises in improv ranging from simple games to multi-character plays, asking them to journal their responses. Throughout and beyond the six session, Lauren reflects on her own development as a teacher, therapist, and entertainer, mirroring the effect on the confidence, self-perception, work-life balance and empathy of her participants. Interspersed with accounts of the six sessions are chapters on the history and development of improvisational theatre, again written in an informal, engaging style. Our exuberant author presents new research, based on her Master’s research at The European Graduate School in an accessible, amusing manner not soon forgotten.
Fun at Work: Improvisational Theatre as Expressive Arts Modality launches on June 15, 2020.
