Do It Yourself (6 hours)
Fri, 22nd Nov, 10 am to 5 pm

We 're dying to get up on stage, yet for some reason, once we're up there we may feel unsafe and terrified. So what do we do? We desperately seek for support. A voice, a knock on the door, a phone ringing, another person bursting in through the walls. That is especially common at the very beginning of the scene and many times we may not even realize doing it. This workshop will show you how to handle any scene like a pro, completely by yourself, without needing the crutch of another player. You will work with a number of exercises that help you gain your confidence when working solo on stage. NOTE: This is *not* a solo show workshop. What we aim to achieve through this session is to be able to handle ourselves alone on stage and feeling confident doing it no matter how long we stay alone. 

About Menelaos Prokos

Menelaos Prokos is an improviser based in Athens, Greece. His improv brain, though, developed in Austin, TX. After that, he moved back to his hometown, where he founded ImproVIBE, the country's first improv school, and theater. During the years of ImproVIBE's operation, he's been teaching students, performing shows, training instructors and developing courses for all levels. He is also the producer of Mt Olymprov, Greece's International Improv Festival, that has been running successfully and growing for the past 4 years.

He is heavily involved in applied improvisation, working with companies from all around the world. He spends a good chunk of his year traveling and has taught/performed all over Europe, as well as the USA and Colombia. His teaching primarily focuses on acting natural, adding fun and realism that comes directly from the heart, and pushing the students towards enjoying everything they do on stage. He strongly believes in creating emotional improv with a purpose that goes beyond the quick joke and has an impact, not just for the audience but for the performers as well. When not swimming the improv seas, he spends most of his free time cycling, playing escape room games and cleaning up the mess his dog makes.

About the Bengaluru Improv Festival

The Bengaluru Improv Festival is Indias FIRST and the ONLY Improv festival. Our first edition in November 2018, marked India's entry on the global Improv map with much vigor. India has a thriving Improv potential. After our first successful edition, we aim to keep bringing BIF back with the intention to get all those who practice the art of Improv under one roof.  The festival will see international Improv artists, who will collaborate with us to perform and teach their experienced knowledge about art.
