Hello Fellow Shenyangers.
I just heard word of a fun new activity here in town that you might want to try out. It’s recently been started by another expat, Andrew, and I thought I’d share it with you. It sounds fun!
It’s called the Shenyang Improv Workshop.
Inspired by the original bilingual Beijing workshop, SIW is a place for people of all (or no) acting levels and experiences to come together and learn the art of improv in a relaxed, fun setting. Classes are absolutely free and are open to Dongbei-ers of all ages, nationalities, and levels of appreciation for the absurd. The workshop will use both English and Chinese.
Workshops are currently being held every Wednesday evening from 7-8:30 on the 9th floor of the Somerset Hotel Heping Shenyang (80 Taiyuan Jie, at the corner of Taiyuan Jie and Bei’er Ma Lu, 太原街和北二马路的路口). (You can tell a taxi “Taiyuan Jie, Hualian” and he should take you right to it.)
Your presence is both welcomed and desired.
If you’d like more information, you can contact Andrew at shenyangimprov (a) gmail.com
Now you all practice hard, get really good and funny, and then let me know when you’re having your first show!
