Ali met improv at a WIT beginner’s class in a mildly dark time of her life. There was a lot of unexpected laughing. The other students were playful and supportive, and however shy or bold, everyone had fun.
This was improv!
It was the start of a happy and strange creative journey, although Ali really only signed up to help improve her public speaking skills.
Since then she has performed in and produced shows, built puppets and masks and,
once, a small tardis. Ali has made several short movies, traveled to Loose Moose in Canada and Improvention in Canberra, and led workshops for emergency management staff, mask-makers, university students, and festival participants, as well as regularly teaching new improvisers in
the very same space she took that first class.
