LEARN, CREATE, LAUGH

The iO training center is committed to creating an inclusive environment where performers and ensembles can practice the art of longform improvisation. Longform is an Art, and the idea that 10 people would DARE to take a stage without knowing what was going to happen is both audacious and thrilling.

REVAMPED, REDESIGNED, REIMAGINED

Our updated curriculum has a new art form:

• Open curriculums

Decolonizing our curriculum removes presumptive language and reframes the global majority as such.


• Teachers in Ensemble

Decentering the teacher means recasting the instructor as an equal part of the ensemble.


• Creative Critique

Decentering the teacher opens the room to the idea that all of us are smarter than one of us, and we all might learn from each other.
