Kids' Stage presented by Tulane Hospital for Children
Interactive Improvised Performances:
<br>Improvisation allows us to be anywhere and anything that the audience suggests. Without the need for elaborate scenery, props, or costumes, we have explored everything from skydiving to Olympic gold-medal room cleaning, as well as symphonic concerts featuring barnyard animals. We can perform in a common play area or in the patient’s room and we encourage participation in any way possible; through suggestions to inspire our games and scenes as well as playing in the scenes with us.
<br>Spinning our “Wheel Of Improv” the audience dictates the show format, empowering them to participate. And that’s what it is all about at Funny Bones Improv – Everything our audience says or does is absolutely the best thing to say or do. By supporting all of their ideas, we can not only add laughter to their day but also encourage creative thinking and confidence in oneself all at the same time!
<br>The show runs about 45 minutes and is full of short form improvisation games and scenes. It’s family-friendly, high energy and positively playful.
<br>The rules of improvisation appeal to me not only as a way of creating comedy, but as a worldview. Studying improv literally changed my life.
