Play is the highest form of human intelligence, coming back to our essence as creators we can build the world that is adapted to ours psychological, sociological and biological needs, where each individual achieve their greatest potential.
Throughout my Expression Art studies, as well as a personal journey into personal development practices and tools - I have learned that the Art of improvisation teaches us how to relate to our surroundings by implementing and involving holistically our whole make up of being a human being:
our cognitive capabilities,
and bodily awareness.
Only by incorporating those 3 levels of what makes us human, we can achieve greater growth, for ourselves as individuals and for the whole of community that we are as belonging to the same species.
To learn how to adapt to any situation and circumstances with spontaneity and creativity,
to become more confident in our skin and mind,
to feel more and give more,
to become more compassionate and collaborative.
to express ourselves in alignment with what we are, feel and think with ease, pleasure, and excitement.
This is all what Improvisation practice can do for you, and what you can do for others.
