Episode 2: On Being Perceived (on the Improv Stage & In Class)

Learn about contexts in which neurodivergent improvisers might feel uncomfortable being perceived... or comfortable, happy, and in their element. Do you like people seeing you doing stuff? And when?
Transcript

No transcript...

The sense of being perceived is all about the activity you are doing when you are being looked at by other people. Having strong feelings about this kind of perception is common particularly with the autistic neurotype. And it can sure seem illogical or contradictory at times, too.

And… people look at you in improv… a lot!

Learn about what being perceived means to neurodivergent improvisers. What is it? How does being perceived work for humans in an improv class, and on an improv stage? What could make being perceived easier?

I don’t think most of these podcast eps will be this long. Yikes.

Improv and Neurodiversity - Podcast & Articles
Neurodiversity and Improv with Jen deHaan
This is a podcast about learning and performing improv comedy. I’m starting with episodes about neurodiversity and improv. Discussions about how being neurodivergent affects scenework, performance, teaching and coaching, teams, and learning (being a neurodivergent improv student).
Topics cover a lot about the intersection of autism and ADHD and improv. This podcast is relevant to all improvisers though: if you aren’t one of us, you either teach or do improv with us!
Not for diagnosing, not for therapy: just for discussing, learning, and being inclusive. No excuses, just explanation.
The podcast is hosted by Jen deHaan of http://FlatImprov.com. You can contact us or contribute at http://FlatImprov.com/substack.
