MASKS! We all wear them at some point in our lives. To hide of course. Shame, Fear, Quirkiness, Vulnerability and so much more. For a really long time my mask was Strength....I needed to make sure people saw me as strong....so I made sure no one saw me sweat, cry, or seem like I didn't have it together. It took the humbling experience through Improv for me to allow people to see the REAL ME. This was a process of course. Imagine like peeling away layers of an onion...yep that was me a stinky onion ha. Each layer that was peeled away in my Improv class allowed me to see and say "Hey...I showed people I'm not perfect, or showed my vulnerability and I didn't die"....ok that's dramatic but yes I am dramatic.
That is the thing about taking of your mask once you do and realize you are accepted and maybe even more accepted, liked , and respected by being REAL and BEING YOU.
This is something Improv It Up is built on. We truly believe in helping people peel away the stinky onion layers to become themselves.
HOW POWERFUL IS THAT? WHAT STINKY ONION LAYERS DO YOU NEED TO PEEL OFF?
