Hey Burgert, Dis lekker om te weet van improv in afrikaans! Ek wens ek kan van jou aanbiedings bywoon. Laat weet my as jy iets in Jhb of naby Pta doen asb.
Ek het improv in my werk en groepe begin inbring deurdat ek social therapy international class en training by die Eastside Institute for Group and Short Term Psychotherapy in New York gedoen het. My groep werk sluit in skole, home-based care givers, intergenerational groep by child development drop-in centre. Dan met my studente - ek laat hulle hul leeswerk perform en gebruik improv as warm-ups en intro tot terapie skills training, soos mirroring, adding and building improv. Ek hou van social therapy wat n performative approach het tot ontwikkeling - wat ons is en doen en word is n performance deur en vir die ander.
Kerstin Gauffin is ook my vriendin - ons was saam by die ESI op n stadium.
In SA, Betsi Pendry is in Jbh en doen improv met jeug groepe ek dink. Ek ken nie ander mense nie. Laat weet my ook van wie jy ken hier.
So good to be your online friend! Let's have some exchange about applied improv with people with edgier needs. I am looking forward to discussing this with you and your sister. Lots to share. Keen to co-create some ideas.
Merry Christmas in your hot world (I have two blankets wrapped around me to get warm).
Ben je naar de kapper geweest? Mooi hoor en baje snaakse website van jouw nieuwe bedrijf! Dat je er maar veel leuk en inspirerend werk mee mag krijgen. Gaat het goed?
Houdoe! (slang from the south, where I origin from)
My good friends Alieke and Lieselotte recommended that I get in touch with you. I run a company called On Your Feet www.oyf.com. We are in the research stage of a project that may bring us to Johannesburg in early July to help lead a 1,000 person conference. For this we are looking for two improvisers from SA that can join our team. The job would entail 2 days of face to face work(1 day for practice, logistics, etc and the other day for the conference) The work would be a combination of facilitation of exercises and performance of improv, it would also have some pre design, about 5-7 hours of phone an Skype) I am currently trying to get a sense of costs as well. At this point what I am looking for is to see if you would be interested in this and what a cost range might be for your involvement, we are creating budgets with the client over this weekend.
That is about all of the details I can give at this point.
Hope to hear from you
All the best
On Your Feet
I'm currently looking into the possibility of doing my Master's Thesis (Business administration) on improvisation. Sven Veine told me that you might be able to help with that because you did some work on improvisation in an organizational context.
What exactly did you do and do you think that there are possiblilities to do a master's thesis on the subject.
Hope to hear from you!
ps. I wrote this in English, buth the comment below suggests you speak Dutch. Since I'm Dutch (too), you can reply in either English or Dutch.
Hi Kirsten! So cool that you're here! Welcome. I haven't found a sponsor for you yet, but I will keep looking! It would have been so cool to have you visit us at the AIN-Eu Conference in Trondheim. I will write more later. Cheers, Sven
