Fun pairs

Ludic Creative sponsors Likewise, a weekly improvised show at the Roxbury Hotel, 182 St John's Rd, Glebe.
Every Wednesday night in 2015. Show starts 7:30, goes till 9pm.
We've contacted every improviser in Sydney and invited them to play.
In March it's Mega Pairs: 2 people, without sets, costumes or any laid-out routine entertain for ten minutes. You get to see 8 pairs over the night, each approaching the challenge differently.
Love to see you there!
Tickets 2 for $10 if you buy online - click here. $10 a head at the door.
The pub has a brand new renovated kitchen and a really cool menu, so come check it out.

See it happening

Does your team need to work together to meet the demands of business?
If they need to listen and work creatively within constraints then improvising skills will help them.
They can learn to communicate playfully and effectively and meet an outcome. Improv develops ways to strategise together, build team and break routines.
We at Ludic are sponsoring an improvised show. Come see Likewise and experience what improv can do.

An hour of inspiration - get your team working seamlessly!

Likewise is one hour of inspiration. Teams of improvising players meld their minds. They work together without talking about the process. And with just one word you get half an hour of stories and relationships. You get theatre.
Your team doesn't need to create a theatre piece from a single word. But they can innovate using the principles of improv in their interactions. They can work even more seamlessly than they do now.
Likewise runs on the third Thursday of every month in 2014. At 7.30 at the Roxbury Hotel 182 St Johns Rd Glebe NSW 2037. 
The show lasts just one hour so come just before 7 and take advantage of the Roxbury's $10 meal deals (which stop at 7pm).

We'd love you to come see the show

And then join the cast in the bar afterwards to talk to people who love to improvise.  Discover how improv principles help them in their challenging day jobs.

Get improv principles working in your team

And then talk to Cindy Tonkin about how you can introduce improv ideas to your team's offsite.
Sign up at improvactually to get an invitation to the next show.
Bring your team along to check it out.  Buy tickets up till the  day before the show at eventbrite 2 for $11.34. Or $10 each at the door.

Improve your team with improv

What happens when you put a dozen smart, experienced professionals on a stage and let them invent?
You get ideas to make you dream, relationships to make you swoon, and laughs from the deepest part of you. That's Likewise.
How can you resist?
At the Hive Bar, 93 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville
Every Wednesday night. 7:30 - 9:30.
Visit the show's web page here
An evening of entertainment for grown ups.
Tickets $10 at the door, or 2 for $10 here.
Come see an affirmation of the human spirit. Come marvel at human invention. Come be happy.

Your Creative Genius

Elizabeth Gilbert's ted talk on inspiration and your creative genius is worth a look in itself, but in case you only have time for the crux of it, Daily Block has summarised it.
You show, up you do your job, and the creative genius will turn up. Eventually.

Here is the link to the Ted Talk.
