The Effect Of Time On Improv and Life

The first thing I do when I teach improv classes is ask the group to get into a circle. I count how long it takes them. The average for a group of 16 students is about ten seconds. The quality of the group’s movement is lethargic, meandering, hesitant and a bit dismissive of the need to make a circle in the first place. Why do we have to do this…aren’t we adults?
