We will create short, dramatic stories based on various impro games, that are originally created for professional actors’ training. Each game comes with a few simple rules which promote the ability to work together, create characters and develop the story.
How can 2, or more, participants act as if they are one person ?
How do you deal with a tiny, tiny creature, that may claim to be located under the Ð-key of your computer ? – Or a 4 meters tall, invisible monster, that tends to be physically abusive ?
What happens at a birthday party, when you find one of your friends there super funny, another has just eaten a raw herring with garlic, and you are so much in love with the third one?
How do we create a story all together, where both the sounds, the weather, characters, maybe animals and also the furniture will have to be acted out by the participants ?
Requirements: The participants will have to bring their own lunch box. AND.. if you have an old hat and/or other dress-up-for fun clothes that you care to contribute to the “costume department”, with permission to be used by the whole team, you are most welcome. But only if you care to.
Ages: 12 – 16 years.

About herself, Julie Wieth says:
Since the 1990s I have taught children and young people, as well as students at actor- and filmschools and professionals in acting and improvisation, to develop stories. Here in the Faroe Islands, I have since 2018 had open workshops at Føroya Fólkaháskúli and Leikarafelag Føroya, and last spring I was in charge of casting for the very exciting television series TROM, where we also had a large children’s casting with girls which I had the pleasure to work with.
