The Quest: Where Will Your Day Take You?

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 10.09.13 AMDescribed by participants as, “completely transformational,” The Quest is an 24-hour improvisational exercise developed by Del Close in the early 1980s, during a series of workshops that he was leading in New York City.

Intended to be a solo-improv exercise, The Quest encourages participants to step out into the world with the frame of mind that they are in when they improvise and to see what happens and then to understand the benefits from the ensuing adventure.

The exercise languished, largely forgotten, until 2014, when improv actor, improv director and comedy writer, Joey Novick reintroduced it to the world at the Applied Improvisation Network Conference in Austin.

Participants, Joelle Sarrailh, Akshay Sateesh and Jeanne Lambin were so enthused by the exercise that they decided to work with Joey to carry out creating Quest days around the globe and, in 2016 celebrate, the first ever Quest: World Wide Edition on March 9, 2016 in honor of Del Close’s birthday.

To reach that goal, throughout 2015, Team TQ will be holding mini-quests all over the globe, in Hong Kong, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Chicago, somewhere in Europe and who knows where else.

In September 2015, Team TQ is thrilled to share the exercise at the Applied Improvisation Network Conference in Montreal.
