Complexity can be created from simple rules. Drawing on The Mandlebrot Set as inspiration — a self-repeating formula that is used to describe the patterns found in the chaos of nature — explore the sense that is borne from disorder.
In this workshop, Glenn shares his ideas on how we might use the terminology of art and maths to help us notice, rather than force connections. A super-fun workshop for non-linear long form nerds and maths nerds. (No maths knowledge required, though).
Patterns of chaos
That moment when your brain starts buffering, there’s a delay, a temporary GLITCH in your operating system, a sudden, temporary malfunction. Sometimes it’s a short-lived transient fault that corrects itself, and sometimes you need to reboot the app. Self-consciousness and fear, cause planning and panic which result in...GLITCH.
In this workshop, Glenn will guide you through a series of tailored exercises, games and scenes, to help train your brain to stay out of its own way.
Improvisation is everything we have been, everything we are and everything we hope to be.
Every time we climb on stage or speak in front of a group, we should risk being vulnerable and revealing something of ourselves, and this should not always feel comfortable.
When we first learn improv we seek to feel comfortable, to do things that seem familiar and feel right. But as we grow as improvisers we need to continually re-invent ourselves and push the boundaries of what is possible for improv and for ourselves.
It won't matter whether it’s comedy or tragedy or anything in between. You will explode your comfort zone and push you to explore your limits and beyond!
Time to get uncomfortable

Rules! There are so many rules! Rules which govern our speech, our actions and our thoughts. Rules which we follow to do things properly, good and right!
So, now you know the rules, LET”S BREAK THE RULES!
As a lifetime rulebreaker, Glenn sets out the rules of improv and dares you to test the rules until you break them, to discover if the rules are actually helpful or holding you back. This is for anyone who is ready to stop blindly following the rules, or anyone whose molecular structure requires them to do the opposite of whatever they’re told, as we methodically set about
Breaking Improv... and putting it back together again, in a way that’s meaningful for you!
