When did you first start improvising?
Life is a continuous act of improvisation. I started when I was very small and had two pushy brothers. Then I did Drama at Flinders Uni. I started comedy improvisation with the OTF team in 2010.
What, if anything, hooked you and kept you coming back for more?
FUN. Getting to know people who are interested in theatre and all have a great sense of humour. Also, I do not have a television and do not do social internet, so I had the time. I'd rather be on my feet than reading, sometimes.
What, if any, improvisation moment was your most favourite? And your least favourite?
I love to perform and hear the audience laugh. (humour is beneficial for everyone) The new male impro participants often use a comic form of violence and putting women down - I hate it.
What have you learnt through your improv journey? Has it added to your existing skills as a performer?
Best not to take anything too seriously and that there is always a solution to a problematic event or encounter. I'm a better performer because I am more flexible.
What has OTF meant for you?
New friends, FUN, it is thrilling that there is a company keeping improvisation and humour very alive and out there, sharing with audiences and helping.
And what was your favourite class or performance moment if any?
One evening one of the new participants who was into rough behaviour, changed and I could see his warm side and I thought then that men could learn to use humour instead of aggresiveness.
