Library Liaisons to attend Improv Workshop with Louisa Johnson

Alda Center Improvisation Workshop (3-hour session)

This unique improvisation based workshop was pioneered by science advocate, Alan Alda. Library liaisons will take part in improvisational theater exercises aimed at helping them connect more directly and spontaneously with different audiences. This is not about turning participants into actors or comedians, but about helping them recognize and engage with the audience on a level where their message can land effectively with the listener. These games require SBU library liaisons to pay close, dynamic attention to others and emphasize the two-way nature of communication. What is received counts more than what is said. Through the course of training, liaisons will investigate body language, listen with more awareness, and respond with greater sensitivity.
