Instant Improv Meetup Aug. 26
Time & Location
About the Event
Improv Comedy is the art of spontaneously creating hilarious situations, memorable characters and moving stories collaboratively, in real time, without a script. It isn’t just great fun, it also stimulates creativity, flexibility and spontaneity, and improves concentration, listening skills and public speaking. Improv also increases self-confidence, and the ability to make decisions and to tap into our intuition. And above all: it’s funny and it will make you laugh!
Because improv involves saying the first thing that comes to mind, it can surface our biases, however unconscious. When problematic assumptions and stereotypes appear in our games or scenes, we take that as an opportunity to learn. At the end of every Meetup, we engage in a feedback round where everyone is invited to share if something made them feel erased, stereotyped or unsafe, and we discuss how we can do better. In this way, we hope to become not only better improvisers, but better people.
