Mandela Monday: Sisanda FunDaytion Improv Circle Stars (7 July 2014)
Artistic Director Jason Delplanque facilitated an improvisation beginner’s course for teenagers at a local children’s home in Woodstock. Sisanda FunDaytion is a non-profit organisation working with volunteers to influence the lives of disadvantaged children in South Africa through recreation and fun.
A group of 12 teenagers between the ages of 14 to 18 met once a week for 6 weeks. Each class focussed on the core principals of improvisation and performance games. Children were taught how to work as a group including improving their listening skills and the importance of making each other look good. Exercises also focussed on building confidence and unlocking creativity. This all culminated with a fantastic show to Sisanda beneficiaries.
The Circle was such a success that it was featured on local news programme Expresso.
