All Humans Are Improvisers from A Way of Life a documentary film by Ace Wonderstar.
In 2009 I did a series of interviews with a bright young woman named Ace Wonderstar. Her life's project was making a documentary film on the life and teaching of Scott Kelman, a theater dance/improv teacher who had inspired her. On the road to understanding the phenomena of improvisation she came across my work, Improv Wisdom: Don't Prepare, Just Show Up, Bell Tower, 2005. I spent a day answering questions and discoursing on improvisation. These comments were folded into the larger video about Kelman's life and work. I recommend her fine film. This tiny clip sets improv in a larger context. I plan to post other clips from this film as I reflect on what improvisation means and how it serves us.
