Professional actress and teacher Vicky Saye Henderson gives a TEDx Talk on the importance of play.
When Vicky Saye Henderson first started improvisational acting, she didn’t think about the fact that the skills and techniques she was using could be applied almost anywhere. In this TEDx Talk clip, Vicky explains:
“I soon realized that many vocations could use this as a means of learning other things. So that’s why I call it ‘the art of possibility’ – it helps us birth lots of things.”
Improv Tips That Work
Vicky tells her audience that there are three important rules to improvisation that are fundamental with every interaction that we have with other people.
