Grease is the word!
Medicine Improv is a very physical form of creative expression. We draw on elements of play, improvisation, free-writing, music, meditation, Yoga, intention setting dance, ensemble building techniques, character and story creation, as well as movement exercises as a way of discovering the story that wants to emerge. This is a safe, open ended space where we are invited to awaken our creative being and come back to a natural sense of play, allowing for a story to emerge almost as if by accident. We use a variety of methods ranging from over the top comedic physical expression to more vulnerable internal heart/mind/body exploration as a way to find that depth of story together.
Developed by Asher Lyons, Medicine Theater bridges it's own unique physical style of play along with exercises and games first developed by Viola Spolin, (the internationally recognized originator of Chicago's The Second City Improv). Medicine Theater draws on elements of improv, ensemble building techniques, character and story creation, intention setting, meditation, and Yoga in order to liberate our body, tap into our intuitive knowing, and awaken our creative play which is our birthright; giving a voice back to the parts of us that have been voiceless.

Uplifting Music: Listening to music that not only has a soothing melody, but an uplifting message, can be great for developing positive self-talk. Have you ever had a song ‘stuck in your head’ for a few hours or days, the lyrics repeating themselves in your mind? If those lyrics were positive and inspirational, that would be a good thing.
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview NBC's Superstore Star Mark McKinney.
Mark McKinney stars as Glenn, Cloud 9’s kind but confused store manager, on NBC’s new comedy, “Superstore.”
As co-creator, writer and ensemble cast member of “The Kids in The Hall,” seen on CBC, HBO and CBS, McKinney was nominated for three Emmy Awards for writing. He followed “Kids” (1988-94) with three seasons on “Saturday Night Live” as both a principal cast member and staff writer. “Kids” later returned to television in 2010 with the raucous miniseries “Death Comes to Town.”
America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star in the hilarious workplace comedy “Superstore” (from the producer of “The Office”) about a unique family of employees at a super-sized megastore. “Superstore” centers around Amy (Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and newly hired Jonah (Feldman), a naive dreamer determined to prove work doesn’t have to be boring. Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn, “Key and Peele”) the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos, “Mulaney”) and the sweet pregnant teenager, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom, “Shameless”). Overseeing them all are Glenn (Mark McKinney, “Kids in the Hall”) the store’s affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash, “Super Fun Night”), the aggressive assistant manager who lives by a very specific code — namely the store’s employee handbook.
