Virtual Sandcastle PWYC

Virtual Sandcastle PWYC with Dahlia Ramsay

Class Description

Virtual Sandcastle is a 90 minute, long-form free association workshop inspired by the improv exercise known as Monologue Hotspot. Kicked off by a one-word suggestion, these sessions will aim to unfocus our conversational brains, letting the thoughts, observations and anecdotes fill a shared stream of consciousness. Book-ended with warm-ups and a debrief, Virtual Sandcastle is an opportunity to converse in an unattached state of flow. Dahlia will be chiefly responsible in a shared effort to maintain an environment that is accessible and unburdened. Individuals are responsible for remaining truthful while managing their own privacy. Not scripted or improvised, we will see what themes naturally emerge before the tide washes it all away.
