I am very excited to coach an inclusive improv troupe that AllProv will be sponsoring! Our goal is to empower individuals with disabilities, chronic illnesses, and mental health issues in our inclusive troupe through creative expression.
What do we mean by inclusive?
We will create IMPROV that is fun, creative, and doesn’t tear people down to get a laugh
We will only rehearse and perform in spaces that are ADA accessible
As someone with multiple disabilites (ranging from chronic pain and decreased range of motion to some lingering effects of TBI), I I have witnessed and experienced discrimination towards improvisers who communicate, process ideas, or move differently. By prioritizing the inclusion of those who often are given limited opportunities, we will build a troupe with a unique creative voice. AllProv seeks to create a troupe where every member feels supported and empowered to express themselves.
If you or someone you know are interested in learning more about this troupe, join us Saturday 2/10/18 at DRIP coffee. If you can't make the meeting but are still interested in joining, email firstname.lastname@example.org .
