Frequently Asked questions
What Is the Quest?
The Quest is an improv exercise.
I still don't understand the Quest!
That is okay. That is the point. The Quest is best experienced through…well experience. We are not being difficult, or clever, or coy, but we found that if we explain to much about the Quest, well that ruins the experience of it. Whether in person, or on-line, when you join us for a Quest, we will tell you everything you need to know.
Why Should I Do It?
We have held workshops on four continents, in over a dozen countries and where ever we are, for most of those who attend it is a unique experience. It is a day about discovering things, paying attention, responding to that attention, and seeing what insights you gained as a result of it.
I'm not an improviser, should I attend?
Yes! Absolutely! All you need is a willingness to participate in the exercise. It is a great way to be introduced to the basics of improvisation without having to “perform”.
I am an improviser, should I attend?
Yes! While the Quest is mainly focused on how to take the improv mindset away from the stage and out into the world, the is a great way to hone existing skills and develop new ones.
Can I bring a friend?
Sure but they have to register. Only registered participants can attend.
Do I have to go on The Quest alone?
It is up to you. We recommend going on the Quest alone, but if you feel more comfortable doing it with a friend, colleague, as long as everyone in the group agrees to it, that is okay. Paired or group Quests, just means that it will be a different experience.
What should I bring? How should I dress?
Bring a paper or notebook and writing instrument of choice. Dress appropriately for the weather, since some or all of your Quest might be spent outside. Umbrellas are always good to have.
