Workshop Presenter Spotlight: Live in the Moment: Theater Games and Exercises
Su-Yoon Ko worked as a stage actress and taiko performer before moving to Korea. She performed and taught acting, theater games, and taiko drumming at schools around Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
“This workshop will consist of theater games and exercises. As children when we played, we just played. We lived in the moment. As we get older, we are taught to think before we act and some of our natural instincts are buried. We can overthink things to the point of being paralyzed.”
She hopes that theater games and exercises designed to help get us back to being in the moment will help sharpen awareness and the ability to focus on multiple things at once.
“These skills can help anyone from those who are shy to those who would like to become more comfortable physically with speaking in public. Plus, they are games- they’re fun!”
