Vegas Improv Power presents a brand new type of Functional Improv™ workshop – our Book Club!
If you’re like us, you have an ever-growing list of books on your “to read” list that you never get to. Let us do the reading for you, and then we’ll put it into practice with real life exercises based on the teachings and philosophies expressed by the author of the month.
Each month, we will pick a new non-fiction book. But instead of reading it and discussing our thoughts, we’ll embody and practice the principles, ideas, and overall message of the book through a variety of improv-like exercises and discussions.
We will meet weekly for four consecutive Thursdays from 7pm-9pm in a Zoom meeting. We will discuss the basic ideas the book presents, and we will create custom classes to bring the book to life through experiential learning. You are welcome to read the book if you’d like, but it is not required. Just bring yourself and an open mind.
For August, 2020, we will be taking a deep drive through Stephen Covey’s best seller. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, a quick Google search will be quite effective.
This class is perfect for improv beginners as it is more discussion based, and less performance based (though we will do a lot of talking and engaging with each other to help bring the book to life). For improv veterans and nerds, this is more intensive than a drop-in class or weekend workshop, but less intensive than a full 8-week improv class for performers.
So come make new friends, try something new, and do some learning in the process as we embark on the first of many Functional Improv™ Book Club events to come!
