How It Works

  • Throughout the workshop, Branch Out Theatre facilitator, Naomi Tessler, will create a supportive atmosphere and invite participants to express themselves creatively and work through courageous conversations using movement, sound, and improvisation-based collaboration.

  • To begin, participants will be invited to reach out across the screen and make a connection with a colleague, then they'll be invited to make silly faces to share how they're doing.

  • The group will be guided through different icebreakers such as mirroring, leading and following a partner through movement or passing a mime ball “across the screen” to a colleague. After each game/exercise, we'll take time to collectively reflect upon the experience and draw connections to the theme of team building within the workplace.

  • Next is a group storytelling exercise where participants are invited to master the art of "Yes, And…" - learning to tell a story together by acknowledging, appreciating, and accepting everyone's contributions, and building upon them with each participant's own creative ideas.

  • Small groups will then use breakout rooms to work on role-play scenarios representing conflicting conversations in the workplace. We'll then return to the main room to present each scenario. During each presentation, the audience will be invited to 'stop' the action of the scenario and role-play an intervention that helps transform the conflicting conversation into a courageous conversation using heart-centred communication.

  • The workshop closes with a playful, harmonizing game, inviting everyone to mime a gift they want to offer the group to symbolize their contribution to the team.

"Branch Out Theatre's online workshop on zoom was wonderful! I enjoyed every moment of it. I felt connected to everyone and even though we are all on our own screens, the workshop felt intimate. It was a strong workshop and I'd definitely recommend it."
