“Improv teaches you to trust yourself and others.”
I believe we are more ourselves when we cooperate than when we compete and learn more when we lose our way. Improv teaches you to trust yourself and others, being bold in your leading and bold in your following, prioritising the task over the ego.
For me, improv is not a set of exercises, but a state of mind. Like a walking, laughing meditation, improv allows us to embrace what is happening and find the power and originality in that. It builds empathy, creativity and charisma. It is not magic, but a learnable set of skills, available and useful to everyone.
