SPECIAL NOTICE: This month's Lab, on August 9, will be a virtual workshop that anyone can participant in, via the web.
Dear friends and colleagues,
This Sunday, August 9, the Insight Improv Lab will take to the web, offering a virtual workshop that anyone can attend, no matter where they are.
For our next workshop, on practicing "Psolodrama Alone," we will connect via the web, review the practice of psolodrama and tips for doing it solo, and then take time off-line to practice psolodrama individually, before reconnecting to share our experiences.
The workshop will be from 10am-12noon Eastern Time this Sunday, August 9. To connect, go to: https://join.me/joelgluck.
We are timing the workshop to make it possible for everyone -- from the West Coast of the US to Asia -- to take part (already 5 participants from Thailand have RSVP'd, among others).
More information on the workshop appears below.
Looking forward to hearing your voice on the call!

COMING SOON TO THE LAB
September 13, 2015: Further Exploration with Psolodrama
Even more fun than doing psolodrama is doing *sung* psolodrama.
Sung psolodrama is, simply put, doing a psolodrama where everything is sung.
Something magical happens when the psoloist is not just speaking what a character is saying, but also singing it. Singing connects the psoloist with her deepest emotions, providing a powerful additional channel to express feelings and meaning through pitch, timbre, rhythm, poetic or rhyming lyrics, etc.
Even if you cannot sing at all, just "aiming for singing" can produce strong results -- what may come out is a rap, a chant, a rhythmic delivery, something atonal. Our goal for this session, as always, is to create a safe and judgment-free space for everyone to explore.
For September's Insight Improv Lab, we will do an improvisational singing warm-up to get ready, and then practice sung psolodrama in pairs and as a group. This will be a fun, deep, and active session -- not to be missed!
Join us September 13, 3:30-7PM, Porter Sq, Cambridge, MA.
