If you are a newly formed improv group looking to focus in on a structure that features your strengths, or an existing troupe hoping to try something new, Amy would be thrilled to workshop with you. She has lead diagnostic workshops to try and break old habits for established groups in many cities across the world. Amy is also interested in establishing coaching relationships with troupes looking to execute a new format, or looking for direction on a more regular basis.
When looking to challenge our top-level in-house ensemble with fresh insight from outside eyes, Amy was an obvious choice. Her direct, no-nonsense way of attacking scenes and habits is still something our cast refers to often in their work. Julie Dumais, Bad Dog Theatre, Toronto
We asked Amy to work with us a director and mentor because she has an incredibly sophisticated approach to directed improvisation. Amy knows how to develop an improv performance to its full potential by looking at form, style, concept and execution. She is talented, generous, rigorous, and we love working with her! Ben Gorodetsky, Folk Lordz , Edmonton
