Living Improv Experiment: LIVE

The Living Improv Experiment (LIVE) is improvised entertainment featuring scientists' lives. This entertaining event is available for conferences, meetings and any occasion celebrating scientists, their lives and their work.

The event begins with games in which audience members interact with performers and each other. Volunteer scientists from the audience sit with a moderator from the LIVE troupe to discuss their field of study and why they work in it. The performers then create a number of humorous and thought-provoking characters inspired by the scientists' lives.

The Living Improv Experiment was created in response to the question, What can we do to engage people in science and demonstrate the power of improv in communication? Our answer: share our humanity.
