Who is Anki?

Ankica from Improvshine

Hi! I am Anki! :)

The fact that you are here probably means that you know that I am crazy about improv! Here are a few more things about me:

I come from Croatia, from one of the thousand Croatian islands. I moved to Munich, Germany in 2014 and this is where I am now. I am a kindergarten teacher by day (the kids are great at improv!) and improviser by night (sounds like a superhero) and on weekends (sounds lame).

My improv journey started in 2018 with a Munich-based open group called Rice Cookie. It didn't take too long for this multiculti group to become my improv family. I have a weak spot for belonging to something. Around the same time, I became a permanent member of The Blue Couch troupe which turned out to be a perfect combination of improv and friendship. Both groups are a part of my present and yes - they are a true present!

Not only that I love improvising, I loooove teaching improv. Especially to newbies. They love my expression: "Own your shit". Most of my workshops combine practicing a particular improv skill with working on yourself. People usually use these adjectives when they refer to me and my work: supportive, encouraging, bubbly, nice, kind, funny, joyful, attentive.

For a year, I was a teacher at improvSTAR (which, due to pandemic, is no longer active). Nowdays, I am a guest host for various improv groups. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand as you know, as of 2021 I am running Improvshine, a place to meet, jam, connect, talk, discover, learn and have fun. You can find more about it on this website and on Facebook page: www.facebook.com/improvshine

In those rare moments when I am not working or improvising or trying to survive my 6 year-old, I practice hand lettering and watercoloring, while listening to indie folk music.
