Online improv meetups

We are organizing in-person session again. We stopped doing online session on June 2020.

We can stop doing it! We are addicted to improv, so let's do it online! To spend less time with technical problemes, Please read this page carefully before joining our online meetups.

Before the workshop

At least 30 minutes before the meeting, install Zoom on a desktop computer. And check:

  • Do you hear sounds? Are the speakers working?
  • Do you hear yourself? Is the microphone working? If you have problems please watch this video Configuring audio and video with Zoom
  • Can you talk without hearing any echo?
  • Does your camera work? If you have problems please watch this video Configuring audio and video with Zoom
  • Do you know how to mute your microphone?
  • Do you know how to turn off your camera?
  • Where is the chat window?
  • Is your battery fully charged or your laptop is plugged in?
  • Do you have water or any other beverage nearby?

We will use the following gestures:

  • Raise your hand to talk
  • Thumbs ups: Everything is ok!
  • Thumbs down: You didn't like it!
  • Cross arms in front of your chest: Stop what you are doing!
  • Police-officer-stop hand: To pause a scene/exercise
  • Waving hands: Applause! (sign language style)

Other tips:

  • When you aren't playing a scene, please turn off your camera
  • Use your body when you are sitting down, make sure you are sitting upright. Create a focussed body position and you will feel that way!
  • Allow time for lag! Stop at the end of your sentence and be delighted by what your partner says. Be prepare for more silence moments as the sound travels to the other participants
