Steen Haakon Hansen is Denmark's best kept improv secret and we're super excited to have him in Oslo!

Terje, the founder of Tøyen Impro, first met Steen at a Keith Johnstone class in beautiful Odsherred in 2015. Steen was facilitating the class together with Keith, in fact the two of them have been working together for over 40 years! It was so good that Terje returned in 2016 and 2017!

 

With 40+ years of experience Steen is a wonderful listener, great source of inspiration and one of the World's best teachers of improvisation! His experience with theater, improv, clowning, object work, bricolage etc. seems unlimited and the way he combines theory with practice is second to none.
