A discussion and exploration of improvisation and identity, focusing on BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ artists.
About this Event:
As we look to diversify our teams and audiences, we need to look at our common philosophies and what they mean in a contemporary and inclusive way. A salon-style talk regarding the topic will be followed by a session of warmups and diagnostics that focus on celebrating digital technology and improv and how we can use it to explore in new and exciting ways.
