Improv performance group

Unhurried, relationship based improv that's not always funny. It's spontaneous theatre that takes risks, tries to be honest as well as funny. We perform for benefits, in homes and on the stage. New shows coming in the fall!

listening = learning

Make your Partner Look Good

Improv classes for all

Take an improv class and improve your life. Daniel teaches beginning and intermediate improv classes through Olympia Parks and Advanced classes in various community locations.


Unhurried Conversations

Unhurried conversations offer time to think differently and in a refreshing way. Unhurried isn't always slow, but it has a pace where people find it easy to join in and not feel crowded out. And listening can be as satisfying as talking.
