As mentioned earlier, I again searched on Google for the correct definition of the word Relish. One example by Google reminded me of my Improv show that we did as Level 3 students.
Just to give a brief about Improv (Improvisation), it is a form of theatre in which no script is used. You get a suggestion from the audience and start to act out the scene. One definitely needs to learn the rules of Improv. Improv has greatly improved my life and I can’t imagine my life without Improv.
I feel grateful to have been introduced to Improv and was taught by renowned Adam Dow. (Founder of ICM, India’s first Improv troupe comedy)
So during the show, I and one partner (a guy) was up on stage and our host Adam asked the suggestions from the audience. Two audience members individually shouted Salsa and Cooking. My scene partner and I heard them clearly. Whenever there are like two or three suggestions from the audience, the host selects one from them and tells the performers to start the scene.
In this case Adam gave the suggestion to us as Cooking Salsa.
To tell you the truth friends, I didn’t know or maybe couldn’t think about the Salsa sauce at that time. The scene could have definitely gone as cooking the salsa sauce. But what we did was a total different version of cooking salsa.
I started the scene by cooking and dancing Salsa dance form and said to my partner, whom I made my husband in the scene, what’s up darling, do you want an omelet at breakfast.
My partner supported me completely and didn’t deny what I started the scene with. The first rule of improv is to Agree. 🙂
We added a lot of new flavors to this new way of relishing salsa sauce. Everybody in the audience enjoyed our version of cooking salsa sauce. Adam also appreciated my work in the end. That’s all you need from your Guru. 🙂
I learnt a great lesson that day that it’s OK to not know about something in life. We can always create a new version of that along our journey with an added flavor of fun.
It was a Relishing moment of fun, happiness and laughter.
