My guest this time is Sue Walden from San Francisco (US): a force to be reckoned with in the area of improv for non-theatrical purposes, or: applied improv.
In this interview we talk about: - how working with a partner has kick started her career; - what obstacles she has overcome; - what she did when she got ‘a little tiny bit bored’; and much, much more.
In the 5th episode I spoke to Sarah Michaelson, a.k.a. DJ Mama Cutsworth, and we talk about:
– her role as a music improviser; – how Speechless started (with a great anecdote from their first rehearsal); – advice for other music improvisers; – how she warms up (which is a little different); and much, much more.
For the third episode of the Ohana Improv Podcast I got the chance to pick the brain of Patti Stiles from Australia. We cover these topics: – how she makes improv formats; – why she prefers crunchy broccoli after soup, when it comes to improv; – what her turning point in life was (of course it included Keith Johnstone); and much, much more.
Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Tim Orr from San Francisco. We cover different topics relating to his improv practice, including: – how his warm-up for a show looks like; – what the turning point in his career was; – how his background as a basketball coach influenced him as a trainer; and much, much more.
Taking a walk through The Hague after a lovely show and fun workshop. #improv
Tonight I taught a lovely class with my very experienced #TVAIMPRO group. They refused to acknowledge the winter break so I continued their classes in January. They played some terrific, hilarious, absurd and touching scenes. A joy to teach. #improv #teaching #tva #theatersport #acting

Last Friday I had the pleasure of guesting @easylaughsamsterdam. Thanks for that birthday gift @jochemmeijer! And thanks to @hoorayimakiki for capturing me shivering in the scene. #improv #easylaughs #creamsterdam #birthday #amsterdam
Greek improv festival @mtolymprov made a meme with my picture! It is also a good moment to remind you all that THIS Friday I will play a duo show with the talented Gael Perry, also featured in this pic. The name of the show is Raison d’être and it was received very well when we performed it in Greece. Theatersport Den Haag is hosting us, very exciting. Hope to see you there! #improv #bluemonday #denhaag #show #meme
My gorgeous friend @rozalska.improv is in town and last Friday I got to perform with her @easylaughsamsterdam. What a marvelous birthday weekend I had. #birthday #friends #improv #performing
Rehearsing with #theferociousfour on our new improv format for short slots. Next to improvising we also ate all my party leftovers and spoke ‘women’s topics’. Into detail. Aw it’s truly the best to be part of this group. #improv #rehearsal #acting #feminism
In the evening of #lauraslittlebirthdaylectures we shared stories of approaching polar bears, paper bag hand puppets for @melaniecmusic, night watch on a sail ship, Jewish mothers and the scariest thing I have ever done in my life. It lead to a beautiful evening of deep talks, silly dances, lots of connections, a large group of friends and one very happy birthday girl. #birthday #storytelling #stories #polaroids
