--------WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION--------


Were flipping the script and learning to welcome, love, and embrace all emotions that live within us. Self-reflective exercises will teach us to take away these layers of judgement and start to understand the language of emotions. Appreciating these messages will give insights on ourselves, creative impulses that live within us, and how we uniquely view the universe.

Emotions act as the bodys means of communicating truths that are living inside ourselves. They act as compasses that guide us towards the things that need to be addressed in our lives. We tend to, however, cast aside the messages that they deliver; judging feelings like anger, depression, and fear as negative and denying ourselves the understanding that theyre trying to promote within us.

Created and led by Teague M. Parker "Improv for Wellness: The Language of Emotions" highlights foundational tools & mindsets that allows us to put ourselves, our creative/professional endeavors, and our dreams at the forefront of our lives, all while having a better understanding of emotions and how they guide us in life.

Needing nothing but a pen, notebook, and desire to care deeper about yourself, Improv for Wellness gives us space to love, care for, and invest in our authentic truth.


----WHAT IS IMPROV FOR WELLNESS?---


Improv for Wellness is an Arts Wellness & Performance Technique using Improvisation as groundworks to help people uncover their creativity, cultivate awareness & self-worth, and learn to love their unique identity, all while learning the tenents of Improv.

Combining established wellness practices, Improvisation, and theatre techniques: Improv for Wellness brings empowerment across mind, body, and spirit.

With the belief that creativity is everyone's birthright, it welcomes all individuals: whether it's people who want to enhance their skills on-stage, or individuals that want to uncover a greater sense of self. No performance experience is ever necessary.

Through playing with solo Improv activities, free writes, exercises, group discussions, and so much more, we will discover how to reclaim & expand our identities. By becoming curious and excited by who we already are, we'll learn to commit to ourselves and everything we want to be.


-------------EXPECTATIONS---------------

- Be respectful.
- Share your attention with facilitator and attendees throughout the workshop.
- Practice mindfulness of both the verbal and physical language we use.
- Respect your personal boundaries. Participate as much as as little as you're comfortable.
- Come with an open mind & openness to possibly connect with others (nothing will be forced!)
- If possible, try to be in a space where distractions are minimal: both for yourself & for people viewing your video chat.
- If possible, please participate with your video chat on (If this can't be done, you are still welcomed to join!)
- Be mindful of noise around you. You may be asked to mute yourself if sounds are too distracting.


-------------Teague M. Parker Bio---------


Teague M. Parker (He/Him) is an Actor, Playwright, Improviser, Producer, and Teaching Artist. After graduating from Western Washington University (WWU), he founded Come Up Productions (Come Ups), where he began freelance teaching his original Theatre technique, Improv for Wellness: a wellness & performance tool using Improvisation as groundworks to help people uncover their creativity, cultivate awareness & self-worth, and learn to love everything about their unique identity to authentically arrive in their everyday lives and/or performances.

Fusing his extensive acting education including Suzuki, Grotowski, Viewpoints, Linklater, Stanislavski, Chekov, Devising, Commedia dellarte, and Alexander Technique, his thirteen years of Improv experience, nine years of teaching, and training with ArtsWa through the Teaching Artist Training lab, Teagues work quickly took off.

Backed by his practical experience serving as both artistic & education director of WWUs nationally recognized Improv team, The Dead Parrot Society, and his time as an ensemble member at Jet City Improv, Teague brought his Improv masterclasses to regional theaters such as Seattle Rep, Seattle Childrens Theatre, Village Theatre, and Jet City Improv. This work soon spread to the graduate students at the University of Florida, Theatre majors at WWU, heart-centered business conferences with Worth the Journey, and institutions such as the Museum of Pop Culture. Teague continues to share his class series & workshops through arts residencies with the drama, health, and English departments at schools such as Roosevelt High School, Everett High School, Open Window Middle School, Connections Homeschool, and Lakeside School, and regularly collaborates with teachers to tailor make Improv for Wellness curriculums for their classroom needs.

Teague has performed around the country and internationally in plays such as Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks for the Teatro UNAM Festival in Mexico City, won the KCACTF Region VII Award for best full-length play, was ranked within the top three Improv teams at the College Improv Tournament national competition in Chicago, is a part of the Teaching Artist Cohorts of Seattle Rep, Seattle Theatre Group, and Seattle Childrens Theatre, and utilizes Come Up Productions to bring free theatre & live events to the WA community.

Uniting artist and audiences to form mindful communities, he believes creativity is everyones birthright, and that we all deserve to reclaim our self-worth.
