Random Slides Improv

BY ANDY SAWYER
@ VOL 12 ON APR 19, 2018

Andy Sawyer is a set designer, inventor, maker, fine art photographer, innkeeper, outdoorsman, teacher, artist, tree-hugging dirt worshiper, and an improvisational comedian. He began his improv comedy career over 30 years ago, using humor as a tool for teaching environmental science at Stone Environmental School in Portland, Maine. After moving back to the Twin Cities to woo and eventually marry the one true love of his life, Nita Nicholie, the two collaborated to help establish the “Calling all Colors” program. Andy again applied improv comedy to this program, using it as a tool for children to begin dialogue on issues of race, stereotyping, and skin color. He next began working with Mike Nadolski at Bridges Theater in Benton Harbor as an ensemble member of the production of “No Waiting in the Loitering Room”, and a community literature-based show based on The Giver by Lois Lowry. Smarty Pants improv was his next stop, where along with his wife Nita, Joey and Jason Greene and Mike Nadolski he performed a weekly family friendly improv show at The Livery in Benton Harbor for close to 2 years. He is a founding member of TORP, and has performed in numerous local murder mysteries and corporate video productions. In an emergency, he can honestly say, “I am not a doctor, but I played one on TV.” He and his wife have raised 23 children over the past 24 years and they have found that the fundamental principle of improv, “Yes, And”, can also be a way of life.

It All Started with a Pair of Pants

BY MONIKA MILLER
@ VOL 27 ON MAY 10, 2018

Monika Miller, certified KonMari consultant, takes a lighthearted look at how asking herself "Does it spark joy?” when organizing her belongings led to a radical “decluttering” of her life. Her presentation is part story of personal transformation and part meditation on our things and the surprising force they can exert on our lives. Monika’s plunge into intentional living did not start with a grand plan, but with the simple decision to discard a pair of black pants.

My Two Hours as a Federal Fugitive

BY KRISTEN WICKER
@ VOL 40 ON SEP 12, 2019

For the past 22-plus years, Kristen Wicker has lived, worked and played in downtown Dayton. Working as a reporter, teacher, PR flak and, now, as the marketing manager for Five Rivers MetroParks, Kristen has been lucky to help promote the many things that make Dayton original, fun and just plain cool. Kristen holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UD, but even a so-called smarty pants can get swindled. Recounting one of her most embarrassing moments (and those of you who’ve met Kristen know this is saying something), here’s Kristen Wicker with “My Two Hours as a Federal Fugitive (or: Never Return a Call from the Social Security Administration),” with illustrations by Josh Koenig.

M2L hosts this special edition of Capitol PechaKucha Night TAKE 12 on Thursday, May 20th at their Showroom in Cady's Alley.

PechaKucha --Japanese for the sound of conversation-- taps into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown.

Organized and launched in March 2007 by sisters and partners of ita-design, Rouzita and Bita Vahhabaghai, Capitol PechaKucha promotes local DC creatives working in all media including the visual arts, architecture, fashion, design, music, film, and literature. Also referred to as "Twitter for the visually inclined", the PechaKucha Night presentation format allows presenters 20 images each shown for 20 seconds - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. Talks are concise, the interest level is constant, and more presenters receive the opportunity to share their work.
