What is improv? Well, it’s not about being funny or getting everything right. It’s about working together to build a shared meaning about a topic and a way to improve your communication style. Improv can be used to have fun and get loose but it can also be used to enhance your life, one way being through public speaking. This form of playing can open up people in the simplest of ways. When you drop away from the rules of life and allow yourself to just be present you can discover new things.
In this episode, we engage in a lively discussion on the uses of improvisational theatre training for communication education and presentation skills. We talk about different principles of Improv to actually playing a few games ourselves so that you can understand the benefit of this activity.
