Event description
THE TRICKSTER: an improv workshop with Itamar Karbian

About this Event

The trickster character as a ubiquitous as it is controversial. This archetypical character existed before stories were written down, and was both hated and admired since its first appearance in the collective unconscious. The trickster exists wherever order exists – its sole intention, to undermine it. Loki, Jack Sparrow and Bugs Bunny are all examples of wonderful tricksters – they’re charming, annoying, and absolutely brilliant.

In improv, we all get to be tricksters. After all, the trickster is spontaneous, funny and totally present – everything we want to be on stage. However, its urge is destructive. The trickster doesn’t have our best interests in mind – it wants to make us uncomfortable and reveals the vulnerability of our scene partners. This makes us worry, which makes us silence the trickster within us.

This workshop will challenge us to come to terms with our own inner trickster. We will mess with each other and with ourselves, we will create chaos and accept the consequences, we will let the trickster shine and take us into dark, unexplored territory.
