EIIF: Will Hines – Robot, Pirate, Ninja: From The Original Robot (SOLD OUT)

Scottish Storytelling Centre
Training Venue
Edinburgh International Improv Festival

After a successful launch in 2019 the annual Edinburgh International Improv Festival is back in 2020 with an even bigger and better line up and an exciting programme of workshops available.

The principles of the smash improv textbook “Pirate, Robot, Ninja” as taught by the robot co-author. We will go over the concept of “flow” (pirate, actor, feeling) and “game” (robot, writer, thinker) and switching between them. We will use lots of terms and rules, perfect for machines who wish to appear human. We’ll go over things like: making
problems worse, relatable realities, voices of reason and unusual people and other improv tools!

Visit for more information on the festival.
