HI Kat -
nice to find you on this network! I have been thinking about you, William and the rest of the gang who were so gracious to take part in my dissertation. I have settled back in Germany and am trying to re-establish some theatre and improv connections. Hope you are well in Albany.
Greetings from Berlin,
Hey Kat! In addition to On Your Feet, I've been working at Oregon Children's Theatre, managing one of their programs and teaching - I've also been working with a long form improv group that Gary and Mame and I started, much inspired by our time at BATS--I love, love, love it. I'm also doing regular theatre, voice over and some small film projects--and trying to fit in time with family and friends so my life isn't just work work work!

AIN MONTREAL 2015 : INVITATION FOR OFFERS
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?
We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients - AppliedImprov.com
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.
