Why are you excited about coming to NZIF?    
New faces, methods, learning opportunities and performance fun times.

What do you get out of festivals like NZIF (or NZIF specifically)?    
Validation, adulation, speculation, trepidation, improvisation.

Best thing about improv is:    
It is a never ending ride, where the player accumulates knowledge, friends and experiences for the rest of their life. Also - no lines to learn - bonus!
