Today I got a birthday present from thirteen virtual strangers. In the form of an Improv Jam organised by Steve Chapman and Caryn Vanstone based on that wonderful premise of inviting an interesting group of people simply to explore and learn together with no specific objective. For me, since it was my birthday, it was a lovely present. I think the favourite idea I came across during the day (thanks Fabiola) was the notion of ‘found improv’.  Of uncovering or revealing improvisation behaviour that is already there, like the unwitting poems that people ‘find’ on signposts.
