Kaisa Kokko (Finland) and Sara Palmer (Arizona) met in Ireland and performed in a mixer show together after knowing each other for two hours.
After that they felt that they simply have to do it again! And so they did. They have since performed together in both of their home countries and are now happy and honored to play at Ocean State Improv Festival.
Kaisa loves to drink sparkling water and has too many dresses. Sara is a fan of good t-shirts, solitaire and potatoes. Let's see what happens on stage!
Performance: Sat, June 9 at 11 pm

with Kaisa Kokko
Throughout our lives we are being poured into certain molds, shaping us within our societies. How do we break out of these boxes we are placed in at birth and begin to feel comfortable showing our true selves?
How do we play different characters with a truthful and believable range of emotions? How can we get more comfortable touching and being touched by each other? How will we beat the fears concerning intimacy on stage and let ourselves tell the full stories of our characters?
This workshop concentrates on honing our skills in human nature through love scenes, experiencing and exploring closeness on stage and sharing our fears, insights and ideas on the theme. By creating a safe environment we have a wonderful possibility to learn more about getting closer.
