Collaborative Creativity through Improv

Improvisational theater performers create an environment where creativity is maximized within an environment of listening and nonjudgemental collaboration. Take a peek behind the curtain as two professional improvisors (and technologists!) demonstrate some of the key principles they apply not just onstage, but their day jobs at software companies as well. Together, Cheryl and a guest improvisor will perform scenes that demonstrate 3 key improv principles, before teaching a take-home improv group game to the audience.

Delivery Options

This session runs a minimum of 30-40 minutes, and can be expanded to 60-minute sessions if desired. A minimum of one local guest improvisor will be required to perform scenes with Cheryl onstage. A/V needs will include handheld mics or headset/lav mics for performers. Audience interactivity can be scaled per organizer preference from simple suggestion-getting to large-scale audience group games.

Conferences in regions without established improv communities may need to cover travel costs for both speakers.
