Show Notes

Part 2 of our interview with Kat and Maggie is here! We pick up where we left off last time - with the significance of inclusion in Improvised productions. Kat and Maggie's Audio Only scene is the best! Also, Synergy Theater is back at the Lesher Center. We introduce Synergy's new initiative, Theater Smarts, and tell you how you can help bring young students to live theater. And if that weren't enough, the second half of this episode honors the previous 10 (or 11, if you count the bonus) episodes. We count back through our amazing first season of Improv in Practice. Thank you, thank you - to our incredible guests and audience.

Improv and the Dancer with Yvonne & Robin

Yvonne Conybeare is a director and actor and lives in New York. Robin Wiggs is a writer and improv performer and lives in London. I met them in our Improv IV class online, and I knew I had to interview them together. Yvonne and Kenn Adams, director of synergy theater, are old friends, and so we talk about Theater Sports New York, and the origin of Kenn's Play by Play. Yvonne has insights on how our defensiveness affects our improvisation and how to overcome it. Robin joins the interview a bit later and we talk about improv in London and how Robin prepares for performances. Make sure that you listen all the way through the show for something a little different at the end.
