Learn trust, communication and respect within the team dynamic.
How do improvisers create fresh scenes from nothing, instantly, on-stage, together? They have rules! Improv is full of approaches to treating your own creative genius and others' that result in productive, positive interactions.
"Make your partner look good." "Accept offers." "Don't block." These concepts and many more guide the successful collaboration that happens in an improv scene.
Trainer and improviser Bridget Quigg has created an fun-filled, inspiring class, based on the book "Truth in Comedy" and her years on stage, that teaches how to quickly connect with others, build trust, and create agreement.
This is a failure free zone. No one will be "on-stage." You'll be on your feet, working in small groups and then talking about what you learned. The most typical outcomes are laugher, great memories, and a new way of talking about each other as "creative geniuses."
Improv is not about being funny. Improv is about making the people you're with feel amazing every time.
Bridget Quigg believes that improvisational theater principles can help everyone feel more confident and engage better with others. A graduate of Stanford University, Bridget has taught improv at Stanford University’s Write Retreat, Applied Improvisation Network conferences, elementary schools, industry association meetings, software companies, and more. Bridget studied and performed improv during college then played with several troupes after graduating, including Seattle’s first all-female improv group, LipSchtick. She has also produced five one-woman comedy shows where she combines original songs, games, video, and sketch comedy to offer her perspective on the world. Her most recent show, "Techlandia" sold out in Seattle and toured in Portland and San Francisco. She currently works as a trainer, writing coach, and emcee.
