Improv the Situation

MPD11 Management and Professional Development

Location: 102C, Wisconsin Center

TUESDAY, 2:00 - 2:45 p.m.

No, that's not a typo. Improv, or improvisation, has made the leap from the stage and TV to the workplace. Actually, it's always been there -- rarely is anything in our life rehearsed. Larry has been a member of Ten Piece Bucket, an improvisational comedy troupe in Florence, South Carolina, for five years, and has been active in theater for more than twenty. His presentation will lay out the basic guidelines of improvisation and show you how to apply them to your workplace. Beginning at "yes, and," he'll also ponder whether the rules of improv can be directly applied to the workplace, or if some tweaking is needed. Be prepared to participate, there may be some demonstrations!
