After training the "neutral position" in Playback Theatre, one participant told me that she had improved memory and concentration for 3+ days afterward.
More about you: (Short Bio or any other details you'd like people to know)
I am a facilitator, trainer, theatre artist and nonprofit administrator. Since breakdancing on the playground in 5th grade, i keep discovering a love of dance and the arts, while i've grown a professional life in international development and conflict resolution. I went to the William Penn Performing Arts high school in York, PA and picked up alternative theatre and modern dance at Hampshire and Amherst Colleges where i also learned social dances--swing, contra, salsa and Argentine tango. My main artistic passions are Contact Improv and Playback Theatre, and i've practiced them intensively since 2003 in Washington, DC, Germany, touring the US and now in Central PA. I've returned to my hometown, working to bridge community divisions here with the arts. Active in the Society of Friends and the Church of the Brethren, i live with my wife and two little ones in Marietta, PA.
I need help with...
Currently looking for full-time or part-time paid work, preferably that i can do in South-Central Pennsylvania.

You have from now until the Monday, May 11th to make a (or several) delightful offers for our tribe’s conference. Again, ’Back to Nature’ is our theme for this 2015 AIN conference. Life on earth is creative, playful, and always improvising. In that sense, being connected to nature is being connected to our whole being, with all of our creative, playful and improvisational capacities. How does your work connect with that?

More info can be found on the AIN Conference Website


Time: September 24, 2015 at 5pm toSeptember 27, 2015 at 5pm

AIN External Website

We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients -

As you know, we already have a great website for talking to each other: this new site is for us to talk to the world, letting people know the value that AI practitioners can bring to organisations and communities, as trainers, facilitators and inspirers of creativity. It also has a sensational new logo, thanks to our very own Bård Brænde.

Please take a look here, let us know how to improve the site, and recommend it to any potential clients you can think of.  If you’d like to be listed on the site as a Practitioner, then check out the sign-up process on the discussion linked to this email here.
