As far as I’m concerned, doing the Bat would be pretty experimental as far as improvised forms go. But Terry Withers has other opinions on the matter. He, along with Amey Goerlich, Harry Gensemer and Nate Smith run E-MPROV, an online theater where teams can perform or improvisers can jam with one another across the country. The catch is that to participate, you have to improvise from your own living room (with our without pants) via Google Hangouts.
I had the pleasure of “sitting down” with these guys over the weekend to hear more about E-MPROV (I was wearing pants!), listen to their stories, and learn first-hand how E-MPROV works. If you thought it was hard keeping track of everything going on while you’re standing on the sidelines, try to hone your listening skills when Facebook is only one alt-tab away!
