Gabi has been doing pantomime and physical improvisation since her teenage years. Pantomime and physical theatre have changed her life in the most positive ways. In order to let other people experience the great transformative power of perception, expression and having fun, she studied Creative Art Therapies. With the focus on theatre therapy and movement therapy, which both include improvisation, she works with kids and teaches people of all ages. Since 2009, she has worked as a professional hospital clown for the Red Noses Clowndoctors in Slovakia. Her work as a clown doctor has offered her a whole new approach to doing improv through the very unique art of being a clown. She has combined all of these skills and art forms to create a wide spectrum of tools, which she applies and uses as a cast member of Funnylicious Improv Theater.
Cast Member and Instructor
Silvia has always been very close to art, especially acting and writing. In improv, she likes that everything that is performed on stage is created right then and there and the audience is a big part of the show. She believes doing improv makes you more positive, because the basic rule is to say yes to whatever that is suggested. She believes that improv skills are not only important on stage, but also in real life.
Besides Funnylicious, she is currently involved in travel and education. She shows foreign tourists the beauties of Slovakia and she helps Slovak tourists experience foreign countries. Silvia herself is a world traveler, having been almost everywhere in Europe and visited Asia and USA. She helps run the educational project Naučmesa.sk, where she utilizes her marketing background as well, and soon she will offer also her own workshops.
Branislav first found out about Funnylicious via a Couchsurfing event. But it was only a few months after watching their live performance that he first had the opportunity to take part in a workshop taught by Hon.
Branislav has always been fascinated by improv theater and saw Funnylicious as a great way to his hands on improvisation.
He likes to keep himself busy organizing couchsurfing meetings and by doing a thousand other different things. Yet he still somehow manages to find time for improv. Some of his friends nicknamed him Mr. Bratislava or The event guru.
