We meet to play with present-moment  interactions ranging from beach-ball to simple natural 'slice of life' improv scenes.

Our driving philosophy:

The world is alive with opportunities, if you believe that then optimism follows, and if you see them and say yes to them, then your range of motion in life is expanded.  In this world view, the better you are at seeing and responding, the larger life becomes.  If you believe that the workings of the world are infinitely complicated, then you keep an open mind to the weird things that can end up great.  If you believe that there are answers swirling around you, then you will look for, and find them.

The optimistic assumptions hold for an improv scenes as well as real life, and that equivalence means that if we get better at improv scene-work, we also get better at life.
