The American Corner Budapest is adapting to the coronavirus lockdown by taking their events online, starting with an Improvisation Workshop on Thursday, 30 April. With our city shuttered and people indoors, this 90-minute creative workout should provide a chance for everyone to stretch their imagination.

There are over 640 American Corners worldwide, the one in Budapest the largest in Hungary. They offer a myriad of educational lectures, fun events, theatrical shows and more, all in English. Now that public gatherings are banned, the organisation is moving their events online.

The upcoming improv event is held in conjunction with Impróka, a self-organising, experimental improvisation workshop group. They have experience hosting online workshops, and aim to introduce participants to the principles behind improv and comedy through fun, no-pressure games and exercises. They recommend that participants be 16+ and speak at least conversational English.

The event is free, but those wishing to attend must register in advance, as only eight spots are available. The American Corner Budapest aims to host one virtual event per week during the lockdown, so those interested should keep an eye on the group’s Facebook page, where future activities will be announced.
