The PechaKucha 20x20 format is simple and fun; even more so when the images are provided and the only task is make up a story on the fly.

Improvisation: If you could call Europe, what would you say?

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT MAASTRICHT
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

In this improvisation on random slides, four volunteers from the audience got five slides each and skillfully improvised on the question: "If you could call Europe, what would you say?"

As none of them had seen the slides in advance, the sense of challenge and the high level of surprise greatly entertained the audience. 

A big thank you to Cristian Tala Sánchez, Osiris Hoepel, Cathy Kwanten and Fjære van der Stok for their participation!

20 Random Slides #PKGRvX

BY JOE ANDERSON
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 15, 2015

In 2010 we began what we call "20 Random Slides" where we pick someone out of the audience to present slides they've NEVER seen.  Literally, once they stand on stage the craziness began and in September 2015 we didn't prep the audience but were lucky enough to have a bonafied comedian in our room to take on this challenge.  He did it beautifully!

20 Random Slides (PKGRv5)

BY DAN TERPSTRA
@ VOL 5 ON OCT 30, 2012

The first official "20 Random Slides" features the passing of the batton from David Foster as curator and city manager of PKGR to Dan Terpstra when David created slides that were a mystery before it began.  Now we are over 10 more "20RS" all created by co-organizer Michele Terpstra but this is where it all began!

Connection Through Improvisation

BY LARA MITOFSKY NEUSS
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 03, 2018

In the summer of 2017, Lara Mitofsky Neuss attended an Improvisation Workshop at Orford Musique in Canada taught by Swedish Percussionist Anders Ästrand. This workshop led to a recent performance and educational tour in Sweden. Her presentation focuses on her growth and connection both in performance and pedagogy related to connecting with herself and with students through improvisation. She takes the audience on a journey that she experienced while learning improvisation. She became more connected and open as she allowed herself to freely improvise without judgement. This growth has now allowed her to perform and teach improvisation around the world, sharing her experience with others.
