For many of us, meeting online is the new normal, and it is likely to stay that way for some time to come, or possibly even forever! So how do we make that online frame a more playful, more enjoyable…more human experience? In this free experimental workshop Oliver will be teaming up with director, performer and clowning practitioner Robyn Hambrook to run through a series of exercises to help you approach presenting online in a more playful way. We will get into things like…

  • Warming up the voice and body
  • Playful ways to connect to our audience
  • Training spontaneity and embracing mistakes

By the end of the workshop we want you to have a fresh perspective on and renewed confidence in presenting in this strange online world.

This workshop will be free to attend. If you enjoy it and are able, we will be inviting you to make a small donation to help pay the bills.


We deliver this event on Zoom. Please book on Eventbrite. From your Eventbrite confirmation you will receive instructions to register on Zoom. We take this extra registration step as a security precaution for online delivery.
