Finding love through improv
William Hall, founder of BATS Improv in San Francisco, wrote about finding love through improv. He says: Improv is one of the most playful things we can do as adults. It combines fantasy, role-playing, social interaction and the excitement of performance. It’s an emotionally charged activity.
Is it any wonder then that people fall in love playing improv?
Which got me thinking about the principles of improv and how they are, yet again, pretty cool principles for life with the people we love – whether we fell in love with them through improv or otherwise. Here’s some that come to my mind. What others would you add?
Make your partner look good
Make, and accept, offers…say ‘yes’
Be present – pay attention
