The Open Improv Sessions are multidisciplinary performance sessions held every Tuesday at WORM UBIK, conducted by Tisa N. Herlec.
The sessions are active, participatory, community gatherings of performers and improvisers from different disciplines and mediums.
And it’s free of charge! A lightly composed/conducted situation will emerge in which a multitude of individuals will form a collective body of an improvised performance; open to the public once per month.
Everybody is welcome to join, regardless previous experience in performative and improvisational expressions. Bring your own equipment/gear/props and dinner.

Who is Tisa?
Tisa N. Herlec is a performer (vocalist), organizer (of situations, sessions, events and concerts), a composer and an improviser, a thinker, a radio host and a writer.
Flowing with a swarm of fragments by the principles of multidisciplinarity, multi-tasking, omni-focus, merging totalities and abundance.
In her practice, she explores the performative, emphasizing improvisation as a potent tactic when facing unpredictability and constant change; as well as collaboration – intuitive real-time creation (in front of an audience), interaction models, and tactics of dismantling fear amongst other anxieties.
