"Improv for Humans" Workshop - Patricia Ryan Madison LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Join Stanford’s Patricia Ryan Madson to play for two hours.  Her practice is to show up, see who is there in the room and then create games and activities that make sense out of the moment.  There are four principles that guide her work:  Attention, Acceptance, Appreciation and Action. She has no idea of what will take place so writing a description is always a challenge. Everyone is welcome. 

Registration can be found here after April 20, 2017.
