Carlo Ritchie's Back!

That's right, the hotshot scalawag who once graced the likes of GLB performances with his humor and charm is back in Berlin for boisterous bacchanalia! And he's teaching a workshop that you will not want to miss!

Carlo left us when demand was simply too high for him in Sydney and he could refuse it no longer. That's not an exaggeration. They wanted him to improvise in Sydney so much he finally gave in went! But now he's back and I assure you that in his workshop, Chopping Carrots, you'll learn to chop carrots with unparalleled reverence and depth.

Register now while the registrin's good!

The Blumhagen Experience

This weekend and next, on Saturdays, July 15th and the 22nd, Hive Improv is hosting Andrew Blumhagen's Intro to Improv and Let's Get Physical workshops. Andrew has been a part of our community for a while now who I've really appreciated because, besides being a skilled improviser, he comes from a background that I don't identify with too strongly myself, but that I would consider nonetheless essential.

Andrew's bio goes into his background and if you participate in his workshops, what you'll find differentiates him from other Hive Improv instructors is his emphasis of instinctive, organic, and spontaneous play. This is the perfect starting point for any new improviser and a valuable exercise for the experienced, especially when the work starts to feel a little repetitive you need an inspiration boost.

If you missed or enjoyed Philip Markle's recent workshop, I highly recommend participating in one of Andrew's upcoming workshops. There's still space, so sign up!

We're planning to have more with Andrew in the near future so keep an eye out.
