Improv

Improv is my biggest passion, and it has changed my life in a positive way more than anything I have ever done. I perform, direct and teach improv and I am the Artistic Director of IT’S, International Theater Stockholm. IT”S has shows, classes and corporate workshops.

I was a member of Improvisation & Co. in Stockholm from 2008-2014. I found them right after I moved to Stockholm and I started acting, teaching and directing there. I created and directed the hit show Lost in Translation, which has been playing to sell out crowds since we opened fall 2012, and is currently in season 5. The show is an improvised romantic comedy about living in Sweden as a foreigner. The show will be produced by IT’S in Fall 2014.

I have also created Action Impro(2010), and co-directed Action Impro 2(2013). We perform a completely new Action movie every show. We worked with some stunt men friends of mine from Svenska Stuntgruppen to improve the level of our stage fighting moves. The challenge was to take something as rehearsed and precise as stage fighting and make it improvised (safely). The show performed at the Chicago Improv Festival in 2011 at Second City.

I teach classes for adults and corporations. Here is an article an online magazine about Stockholm wrote on my class.
