What we're about
From inspiration to action. This is a book club about books that can inspire improv and performance. As such, we will share our favorite quotes, try to identify three major themes, and then, get on our feet, and use the theories to create improvised scenes.
As this is improv, you don't have to have read the book - just be open to listen, learn and apply.
