Hi, Everybody-- Please note that our new meetup time is 8 to 10 PM each Wed evening. We are still located at the Mountain View Community Center on Rengstorff Ave.
This change will have three immediate effects on the meetup. First, the late start means we begin 8:00 PM sharp -- no waiting for people to trickle in. Second, we have to be out by 10:00 PM -- so we won't have the luxury of stretching into "overtime" like in the past. Lastly, the new schedule means that the Long Form Hour which Tom ran from 9 to 10 PM is no longer an option.
We are improvisers, right? We can yes-and this unexpected change and adapt our approach to make better use of the shortened time.
In the meantime, we are working to get back to the "normal" time on Wed, and will keep you posted.
Improv, the jazz of acting, the free-flowing river of spontaneity empowers us to explore the multiple personalities and characters that each of us is, desires to be, or is curious about. At any given moment, our mood and energy level depend largely upon our perception of our current surroundings.
Improv liberates us most profoundly by reintroducing us to our own imaginative capacity in a way that embraces it. Take a common dull experience like standing in line at the DMV. Instead of drooling on ourselves or counting the number of nose hairs erected on the attendant's face, we can instead imagine, even enact, standing in line to be part of NASA's first ship to Uranus where our Galactical democratic elections are coming to a close. Scifi, drama, comedy, anything works.
