Workshoptour Tim Orr (VS)

Voor de Amerikaanse impro-trainer Tim Orr organiseerde ik een workshoptour door Nederland, België en Frankrijk. In totaal gaf hij meer dan 100 workshopuren in 2,5 week, een absoluut record voor hem.

De weekendworkshop werd gesteund door All Improv, voor wie ik onderstaande blog schreef.

Tim Orr is an actor and trainer from San Francisco, who played with renowned groups like 3 For All and True Fiction Magazine. He now owns his own company Improv Playhouse of San Francisco and has been visiting The Netherlands every two years since he performed at the Amsterdam impro festival in 2005.

For his 2013 tour he visited 3 countries to teach Dutch, Belgian and French improvisers (almost) everything he knows that can add to better improvising.

And it started all with the weekend intensive Advanced Wheres and Action. About this workshop Tim said: "I haven’t taught this yet in Amsterdam. I think that people would love it!"

After 2,5 days of swimming in the Olympics, getting lost in horror houses, flying helicopters and chasing murderers on a merry-go-round, that was indeed what had happened: all 14 participants loved it. And each other. And Tim for inspiring each of them tremendously.

To close, the master himself speaks:

"Many thanks to all my students, friends and colleagues in Amsterdam and throughout The Netherlands for an awesome month of improv!  It's an honor to work and play with you.  Special thanks to Lady Laura Doorneweerd for a great job of organizing all the workshops, and also to All Improv for its support. Hope to see you next year!"
