“Come turn your forgotten Fool, slumbering in your inner worlds, with no present recognition. Connect to your source, your sauce, your truth, your author, your playful twin! It is discovered in theatre straddling from Shakespeare’s love to a banana skin… Be a Fool. Be at ease. Improvise. Stand fearless. Begin truth. Make worlds connect! Begin and triumph over the mediocre. Create worlds only you can imagine! Give action to them in the Fools theatre worlds. You’re a Fool. Know it, deep down, you’ve been rumbled. Now come out to play and enjoy yourself. Turn the world you know to a new world where your real world is infected with your Fool. Be true to yourself. Connect to those other actors on the worlds stage come and begin.” 
(Jonathan Kay)

A Note on Covid 19 and how it affects the NOA

The NOA year 2019_20 was a very difficult year, as we were strongly affected by the corona crisis. Though – from Facilitators to Beginners – it is the strong wish of everyone to keep the momentum. This is why we’ve decided to look at the upcoming year as an interval to enter new territories, where we develop new formats that will in some way or other become a continuous part of the NOA in the future anyway. The good thing for you is, that this makes joining the NOA much more affordable and easier to manage. Also we have a number of new exciting events that will take place in the upcoming year. Please have a look at our Schedule.

Schedule 2020_21

New Beginners Group

In 2020_21 we will have three Beginners groups. The schedule for the groups that are in their year two and three can be found HERE. Below the schedule for the group, that will be in their first year. Unless otherwise stated, participation in all events is obligatory for the continuously working group members. The work with Jonathan Kay in 2020_21 will mostly take place online. Please see some examples of how live-improvisation can work online HERE
