Tom McNamara has studied, performed and taught 90’s Chicago style improvisation in Chicago and among the palm trees, surfboards and happy souls of Hawaii. As he taught for Maui Improv, Tom continued to refine his skills with most every master improv teacher who visited Hawaii from the mainland. Tom brings to the stage a strong background in mind/body techniques, Feldenkrais, Aikido, shiatsu, Transformational Breath, and ALBA emotional techniques. Tom believes that we all “get” improv through various channels that include the five senses. The more we activate these channels, the more we have a chance at a complete experience. In the words of two of his top teachers, Del Close, “Play at the top of your intelligence.” “As an audience gets larger in size, the collective intelligence goes up.” Dennis Zacek. Tom recognizes that there are many forms of intelligence, and he looks forward to holding space as you integrate and play with yours!
