Our “origin story” is 25+ years of experience in producing, performing, and teaching improvisation.
This wonderful artform gives us a simple, analogous model for how anyone can choose to thrive despite change and ambiguity. Night after night, year after year, our “laboratories” have been the historic Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre, a school for professionals, and all our wonderful clients and their employees.
We have seen time and time again how activating new behaviors can help us communicate, collaborate, innovate, and execute regardless of external forces and circumstances that are out of our control.
Sure, it is easier when the world is simple, and we’ve got the wind at our backs. What improvisation shows us is a new model for how we can meet goals, be productive, perform at the highest levels, and feel fulfilled – even in the most challenging times.
We chose the name “Brave New Outpost” because we see ourselves as your servant guides to help chart new pathways to new territories. We’ll bring some tools, supplies, and our hard-won experience, and at the end of the day we’re right here with you every step of the way on this journey.
