Improv: Celebrating Failure and Giving Up Control

Abstract

We use improvisation to improve communication and collaborative creation. Some of the basic skills like; Not being afraid to fail (in fact, celebrating failure), staying in the moment, being flexible and listening to the people you're working with, and celebrating their ideas.

I'll be teaching some basic improv games. Some will be with the entire audience (they can stay seated to do these) some with audience volunteers up on stage. Then connecting how these skills can be transferred to your everyday life at work, at home, among friends... heck, in all areas of your life.
