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.
Sometimes you teach a workshop in Madrid and one your students just happens to be a ridiculously talented photographer. Then you get pictures like this. 📸 @javierdepascual #improv #madrid #travel #spain #teaching #blackandwhitephoto #bw
My wonderful hosts took me on a tour through Madrid. This palace is the biggest of Europe, a whopping 135,000 square meters. #travel #madrid #spain
My tour guide and new friend Belu gave me a night tour of Madrid whilst practicing her English. We spoke a delicious mix of English, Spanish, gestures (like pointing back for the past tense) and Google Translate dictation. What a gift to connect with this lady beyond language. @fenaortalli #travel #madrid #spain #tapas #bodegamelibea #travel
Belu, the wonderful wife of @fenaortalli, took me to this beautiful museum in Madrid. Going in the evening is great. Having a guide that knows this museum as the back of her hand is even better. Got some culture, baby! #museum #madrid #travel #museodelareinasofia #spain
Let's do this Madrid! #travel #madrid @fenaortalli
Having lunch with my friend Tim from San Francisco. I contribute so much of what I do well on the improv stage, to him. He's a phenomenal teacher and just a great guy to hang out with. If only he'd work on his selfie face... #friends #timorr #3forall #cafedejaren #mentor #improv
Yesterday we performed with #theferociousfour in a double bill with improv group Broos. What a fun night in a beautiful theatre. I so love my group, they are just the best. #improv #performing #feminism #amsterdam #allimprov
