Show Notes

What makes practicing Improvised Theater an adventure? Is it overcoming your stagefright? Playing odd characters? Following a scene wherever it leads?

Yes, and... it's having both the courage to follow your creative dreams and the will to be surprised by your own innate skill.

In this episode, Griffen Davis Bier and Alev Gunay, of Synergy Theater, expand on these themes. And, there's Guy Fieri, Indonesian bats, and reckless drivers in Egypt - all of which could be in the next(?) episode of Adventure Serial!
