Play Anxiety Away - Level 2 - Winter


Play Anxiety Away - Level 2 - Winter


Welcome back! Let's continue to grow and play together. Now that we're a little less nervous about improv, we can do some scenes and really play with communication skills, thinking on our feet, and learn how to bring play into the "real" world outside the classroom.

6 weeks, starting January 2019


WHO: A bunch of friends who enjoyed the fun of Level 1.

WHAT: Play Anxiety Away – Level 2, aka more play!

WHERE: The Social Capital Theatre154 Danforth Ave, 2nd floor.

WHEN: TBD (probably Sundays, and probably starting in January)

WHY: Cause it’s helpful and fun!


Here’s a quick summary of the concepts we’ll cover in Level 2:

Listening and Connecting: We’ll play more with shifting your focus from what’s going on in your head, to what’s going on in the outside world, and get comfortable being ourselves and connect as humans, “flaws” and all.

POV: We’ll play with characters and “faking it till you make it,” help you find your voice and make decisions instead of hovering in the scary unknown.

You are enough. We'll play with the idea of doing nothing. Strip away all the learned judgements that keep us from being silly and having fun naturally, and the need to achieve and win and grow. Instead, just do what you're doing in the moment, and know that just being here is enough. 

Heightening. We'll play with pushing our ideas of comedic levels. Instead of going against our thoughts and feelings and trying to control them, we'll go with them. 

Group: We’ll play with finding our place in the group, and see that we’re not alone in how we think and feel, and enjoy being worthy of love and connection.

“Real” world: We’ll play with ways to bring play into your life, find that work/life balance, and see that professional doesn’t have to mean stiff and stressed.

Play: Obvs. We’ll play with play every day because it’s hard to be anxious when you’re in a state of play, and play is fun, play play play. I like the word play.
