Moving Improv Online Part Two

Season 1, Ep. 20

In the second part of this series on online improv, we re-visit some of the voices you heard last episode - improv practitioners who have taken their work onto visual online platforms like Zoom in order to still teach and perform. As the global improv community continues to wrestle with its current inability to do in-person public performances, we hear about the discoveries, the moments of joy and the future of online improv. Will something that has become necessary may end up leading our art form somewhere new?
