• MiNDFUL iMPROV with Eric Fisher
    This isn’t your average improv class. It’s community, instantly! Why? Because our focus is not the improv itself but YOU as the one who is experiencing it, and we’ll all have that common unity. As social creatures, our relationships directly impact how we see the world and ourselves. Usually that means we feel limited in one way or another. So if you feel limited, in your expression, confidence, energy, character, etc. but you can envision an expanded version of yourself, this class is for you! Or, if you already experience a boundlessness of character, just come play! Tangibly, we’re just getting together to play some fun conversational games while paying attention to (aka being mindful of) our experience. Then we talk about it :) This class is facilitated by Eric Fisher, former social product designer at Facebook and current product director at HighExistence, an international collective dedicated to exploring the frontiers of the human experience. Eric also founded and champions the growing MiNDFUL iMPROV global community of therapists, counselors, healers and teachers promoting clear communication for self discovery (https://mindfulimprov.com). PRE-REQUISITE: At least some familiarity with the basic tenets of improv. If you've never taken a class before, best to start with one of the Open Play nights on Thursdays or Tuesdays!

  • Open Improv - Long Form
    This is a blast! All levels are welcome. This is not a class, though there will be some side coaching at times. Audience is welcome. Please do not be late. If you decide not to come, change your RSVP so that others may attend in your place. What is Long Form? This explanation is from the Washington Improv Theater: It's simple, really. Longform improvisation is making up scenes as you go along. That's it. While other forms rely on premises or games that are often looking for jokes, longform improvisation trusts the performers to do it all on their own, knowing they will help one another create a success story. Taking a single suggestion from the audience, longform improvisers will create around thirty minutes of made-up scenes. In teams (or troupes) of roughly two to ten people, the players believe that everyone on stage with them is a genius and that no mistake is ever made. Longform helps you create trust in yourself and everyone around you. Del Close, the father of modern longform improv, said on his death bed, "We succeeded where others have failed. We created Theater of the Heart, a theater where people cherish each other to succeed onstage. Tell the students, Theater of the Heart." This mind set is how we approach comedy. If you can strip away any desire to tell a joke, you can create something funny that comes from truth. Comedy that comes from the heart. This is why longform stands out.
