ABOUT ON & OFF THE STAGE

The Journey of Improv | On and Off the Stage...

...Started 20+ years ago on a plane ride to Nairobi, Kenya. Throughout the years, crew members with different perspectives from all over the world helped to guide our trajectory, and we officially took off in 2020.

 

Grounding Improv in science, revealing its therapeutic benefits and using this artform to empower Black, Brown and Queer communities to tell their stories On and Off the Improv stage,  drives our crew. 

We were the Improvisors staying up late after shows, wondering how to study the effects of different types of laughter (there are 10 types) on productivity and how best to structure an Improv class for those struggling with grief.  We knew we were a different bunch of Improvisors. 

Our passion for connection, communication  and insight  are what shape our relationships with each other as a crew. That passion also guides us to produce events and contents that begin to bring worlds together, On and Off the Stage.
