Maggie Light: 2016-17 Faculty Development Grant Report


I came. I saw. I said, ‘yes, and…’ For three months at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), I improvised, playing characters like a weight lifter who hates her body or a minster who gives baptisms in shopping mall fountains. This class helped me in developing a new course at Otis College: “Improv: A Social Critique”, a class that connects improv to the artistic process and to the themes of social responsibility, creativity, and diversity.
