The theme for 21st Seattle International Festival of Improv is “Power.” In these times, it feels as though life, events, government, and culture is happening to us. Political dynamics between people, between nations, families and even within ourselves have left many with the feeling the need to re-engage our personal power in the world. In this festival, we will explore the role improvisation in presenting everyday lives and politics involved on all levels. How can we improvisers use our tools to tell stories that reflect our world today.
