Compete Compassionately

Sat, Jan 25 & Sun, Jan 26, 10 am - 5 pm


Many improvisation formats create the illusion of competition for the audience.  The truth is that the competition is there and not there at the same time.  This paradox runs through improvisation's core.  Rules/not rules. Compete/co-operate. Etc. Play to the top of your game but be ready to save your partner as they fall off the edge that you pushed them from. Embrace the desire to win but reframe what winning really in in the world of improvisation.
