This week’s Virtual Drop-In is led by the fantastic Stephen Davidson, and is all about improvising gender!
Do you feel awkward playing genders different from your own? Just want to make sure you’re doing it well? Come along to this one day workshop and push your boundaries. We’ll build some useful improv skills often associated with gender, look at character traits from all over the gender spectrum, and have a chance to try some characters that are off the beaten path (and possibly outside your comfort zone!). Be vulnerable, be brave, try something new.
Stephen Davidson is the Artistic Director of The Improvised Play, Improvable, QI: Queer Improv, Carmen: A gender-swapped Film Noir Fantasy, and of Zeal: The Pride Improv Festival. Stephen teaches improv through Improvable and the Nursery Theatre, with the Free London Improv Project, and Hoopla Improv. He has taught and performed all over the world.
Stephen loves improv and one of the world’s most cheerful people when playing or teaching. When coaching and directing improv he prides himself on creating a positive environment so that players can perform at their best. Stephen likes his improv like he likes his partners; silly, clever, and emotionally connected. Stephen has studied improv through i/o Chicago, The Nursery, Annoyance, UCB, Hoopla, The Maydays, Music Box, Showstoppers, Imprology, and with many visiting artists including Dave Razowsky, Bill Arnett, Kaci Beeler, Heather Anne Campbell, Deanna Fleysher, and many more.
