About this Event

DELVE IN with Ese Atawo

Ese Atawo is back again with another character workshop: Delve in! This workshop is based on Ese's theatre training in taking time and giving your body the freedom to bring forth the characters you have inside. With focus on vocal and physical exercises, students will create characters that are rich and grounded and most importantly, rooted in you because it is you! This workshop will require you to be truthful to yourself and your process - you can only go as far as you allow yourself to go.

Prerequisite: 2+ years of improv training, or part of an improv troupe

Pre-workshop Homework: Please bring a piece of literature that you are comfortable reading out loud. It could be anything so don’t over think it.

Warning: This workshop is meant to be a deep dive, and will require you to arrive prepared. While we hope the workshop will be enjoyable for you, it will take a lot of energy and commitment, so it is not your typical "silly improv workshop". Please join the workshop having eaten, in comfortable clothing, and feeling ready to work.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Ese Atawo is a Nigerian Canadian actor and comedian. Raised in Toronto, Ese began her love for live performance through local theatre companies and festivals. She enjoyed the diversity of being apart of Canada’s largest ten-minute play festival, InspiraTO Festival, for two consecutive years. She found strength through truthful vulnerability as a cast member of Toronto’s Vagina Monologues production of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer as well as Any One of Us; and she embraced the challenge of a German written play in Summerworks production of Kasper and the Sea of Houses. Along side Ese’s involvement in theatre, she began studying improvisation through Second City Toronto. With improv being so engaging and spontaneous, Ese completed all six level as well as Second City’s Conservatory program. Ese relocated to Vancouver to expand her training in improv by taking classes through Instant Theatre and eventually became a cast member and frequent player. Her involvement in improv has enabled her to be apart of successful improv troupes such as Your Moms and Nasty Women; a faculty member and a Diversity Coordinator for Blind Tiger Comedy school; as well as being involved in successful theatrical events and festivals throughout Vancouver and abroad.
