Why are you excited about coming back to NZIF?
It's the best improv festival in Australasia. 

What do you get out of festivals like NZIF (or NZIF specifically)?    
It's intimate, it's super friendly, and most importantly - it focusses on the wide range of talent in New Zealand.

You’re What will people taking your workshop get out of it?     
Very rarely do we get the opportunity to trial a format with a group of likeminded individuals without the stress of putting it on. This workshop is entirely designed for people to come with an idea, try it out, get feedback, tinker with it and take it away and put it on somewhere.

Best thing about improv is:    
How delightful it is.
