Our October Improv Retreat is going to be here before you know it and with the retreat almost Sold Out, we’d like to introduce you to your improv teachers who you’ll be playing with this year. Next up, the one and only, Liz Peters!
Hey Liz, what’s the feeling like in the Maydays camp the night before the retreat kicks off?
There’s a bubbling of excitement. There are always last minute details to fine tune so there are many thoughts to keep on top of, as well as the feeling of a horse ready to break out of the gate for the epic run to begin!
Is there a particular part of the retreat that you’re most looking forward to?
We’ve taken on feedback from previous retreats to offer some slightly longer classes and a little more space for rest and connection. So we’re expecting all the same joyful creativity and experimentation of previous years, whilst remaining physically and emotionally vibrant enough to get the best out of the experience.
What’s one of the funniest moments from previous years for you?
Two monsters (each one created by multiple improvisers) flirting. Magnificent collaboration!
What’s one of the most magical moments from previous years?
An impromptu late night session in the bar led to people trying all kinds of amateur acrobatic endeavours with the support and encouragement of each other! I was able to do my first ever handstand and felt completely safe and supported. I’d never managed this before and was elated. #lifegoalunlocked #youraisemeup
