Palate Cleanser: Improv in a Second Language

Jul 14, 2017, 12:00 AM

Recorded live at the #DCM19 podcast lounge, UCB performers Glo Tavarez (Maude night, Fifty/Cincuenta), Raiza Licea (Improvisos Peligrosos), Tony Rodriguez (Improvisos Peligrosos) and Boris Khaykin discuss what it's like improvising in a second language. They chat about racial representation in media, how language can affect improv style, and how personal background comes into play when establishing a scene's base reality. And, of course, microwaving fish at work.
