Nu World Works on Improv
By: Marvin Roxas
Tavish Forsyth, who joined the Baltimore Improv Group in the fall of 2014, has been facilitating comedy improv sessions with the Nu World Art Ensemble Wednesday evenings at the WombWork BlackBox Theatre. This has involved a blending of different cultural backgrounds and methods. Activities ranged from word association games to role-playing exercises intending to impart improvisational skills onto Nu World Art Ensemble members. Exercises and activities facilitated by Tavish brought ensemble members outside of their comfort zone in an attempt to grow the troupe's skills in a different direction.
