Improv and Being Human
Princeton Graduate Improv Club
December 9, 2019 · 7:00 pm-9:00 pm · Princeton Public Library (Community Room)
Humanities Council; Princeton Public Library
The Princeton Graduate Improv Club, along with New York-based improvisation instructors, will teach audience members improvisation. Improvisation spurs creative thinking, confidence in public speaking, and unconventional problem-solving. It offers an antidote to social anxiety and expels tension through collective self-expression and laughter.
The craft of improvisation necessitates engagement at the top of one’s intelligence, with players mutually discovering novel relationships between assumed-disparate concepts. One of the benefits of this art, then, is the generative potential inherent in combining intellects of all types to reexamine often-taken-for-granted aspects of lived experience. The collective improvisational mind functions as a social leveller, a means to enhance both empathy and community.
