#SWIMP20: Improvised Rapping (workshop)
About the workshop
We can achieve incredible things in improv once we let go of our ego and stop attempting to present a conscious outward image. We can catch a ball that's thrown to us without thinking, but attempting to consciously work out the trajectory with mathematical sums would be near impossible. On top of all that: improvised rapping (aka Freestyling) is incredibly fun and good for developing a calm, reflexive mind that's open to surprising ourselves again.
The workshop takes everyone from intermediates to people who have never tried rapping before (they'll certainly get the most out of it) and uses a combination of techniques to get them performing full length cyphers and the show stopping set pieces used by professional freestylers within 3 hours.
