Playing with status was one of the aspects I liked most about improv, as is definitely a strength. Getting out of the mindset that we are stuck in a particular status can be so rewarding and create humor on stage – which is amazing! I particularly enjoyed the games in which status changed half-way through or at another point in the scene.
Building on this idea, many of the aspects of improv: teamwork, status, positive attitude, etc. can be applied to almost anything else. This is by far the biggest strength of improv and something that I will take away with me forever. In this way, improv has really changed the way I think!
Offstage, I learned that status changes everyday and almost in every different situation. This gives me more confidence to take risks.
