WHAT IS DAYPROV?
Dayprov is two things, hypothetically. At the moment it is a weekly, free, hour-long improv jam in the basement of the Triple Crown. Every Wednesday, 4 to 5pm. You show up and then do an hour of improv scenes with whoever else is there. No coach, no audience. The number of performers typically ranges from 2 to 15 (with an average of, let’s say, 4). I try to go every week (which in real-world terms means I end up going two or three times per month). I do very little publicity, because I selfishly enjoy getting in a ton of scenes when I do go.
The other intended focus of Dayprov is a general push for more free improv jams during the day. Mostly aimed at people who are already performing and taking classes and rehearsing (and going to some of the wonderful nighttime jams that already exist), but want as many “reps” as possible. And probably for free, since most of us are already spending untold fortunes on classes and coaches.
Do you know of another free space where we could hold a weekly (monthly?) jam? Would you be willing to spearhead it?
There’s a Facebook group, if you’re interested in any aspect of this. I’m also totally open to any ideas about how to expand or improve upon the basic idea…
