Our Scenic Touchstones
Improv Cincinnati strives for its performers and students to consistently demonstrate the following touchstones in scenes:
Presence – Listening and focused, ready to “Yes, and…”
Playfulness – Contagious fun for the performers and the audience
Positivity – Characters play with joy and wholeheartedness
Truth – Scenes prioritize authenticity and believability over chasing jokes
Vulnerability – Performers let down their guards and play emotionally intelligent characters
We want to be a best-in-class improv theater with classes, shows and community activities every day of the week, a thriving creative consulting agency, and national recognition for artistic and philanthropic achievements.
