The Courtyard Playhouse presents ‘Improv’ Online Master Series’ where we gather some of the world’s most talented improvisers to teach a 6 week series of intensive workshops. You can sign up per instructor, or take the whole 6 weeks at a discounted price.

Magical Realism it´s a genre where extraordinary, unreal and strange things appear as part of the daily life as if it was completely normal. This workshop is a journey through the complex world of magical realism exploring different tools that can help you dive into this amazing and powerful universe. Different ways of playing with time, fantastic or magic things as part of normal life, what is magical realism in our cultures, social and political relationships and situations and characters and spaces, are part of the exploration.
