Event: Act Like A New Yorker – A workshop that digs into the grit and grind of living in New York City using acting, movement and improvisation, April 4

For many Australians, New York City is surprisingly different to what we expected. And it’s the little things, like the way we converse and our sense of humor. But some challenges feel bigger and more confronting – like that confidence and assertiveness that New Yorkers exude ….

Led by Kate Lee, Act Like A New Yorker is an interactive workshop that uses acting, movement and improvisation to tackle some of the challenges of living in the Big Apple. Using serious fun, this event aims to connect our experiences and find our own ways of being seen and heard in this big, noisy city.
