Maps be damned! Just perform!
I love improv. I love teaching it. I love performing it. I love watching it.
I can truly say it changed my life. It brought me out of my shell. It gave me a circle of friends that are closer to me than family. It gave me a secret handshake that allows me to enter this world no matter where I am. I feel like everyone should give it a try at least once.
It doesn’t matter where you do it; A huge theatre in a big city, a crappy bar in the middle of nowhere, or in a living room somewhere. I’m just happy that you get to be apart of this amazing experience.
I want to exist in a world where there’s more improv, not less. I’ve seen amazing work in some of the “big theatres. ” I’ve also seen amazing work in smaller venues that you probably have never heard of.
To me, your passion for improv is way more important than your geographical location. Find a way to do the work you love with the people you want to work with.
It doesn’t matter where you are. It doesn’t matter where you studied. Just get up there and perform!
