YBY ep 332: Emma Borrow is sprinkling her improv magic on the world.

This week on Yes But Why, I chatted with Copenhagen-based improviser, Emma Borrow!

Emma Borrow is an improv performer and teacher currently residing in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Originally from England, Emma began her theatrical journey at the Copenhagen Theatre Circle, an English-speaking amateur theatre group, with a 55-year history of bringing people together through the love of the stage.

These days, Emma can be found performing weekly on the mainstage of the Improv Comedy Copenhagen’s ‘ICC Theatre.’ She also hosts Jam nights for ICC students! Emma also helps to organize the Copenhagen International Improv Festival, which is regrouping for a triumphant return in 2024.

Emma’s improv style, both when playing and teaching, is driven by curiosity and playfulness. She believes in being an advocate for the international theatre community in Copenhagen. She seeks to create a safe space for both native Danes and expats to unleash their creativity. Emma’s goal is to help building the performing arts communities of Copenhagen and to meet inspiring humans along the way.

In our conversation, Emma and I discussed the ways in which we realized our own superpowers. We talked about positivity and curiosity as the keys to unlock any door.

Emma has always been a very adventurous spirit, kicking off her postgraduate career working in hospitality all over Europe. She told me about some of the wild trips she took before landing in Copenhagen.

Emma spoke of finding the freedom in Denmark to pursue her creativity. We got into a discussion about cultural differences and how she has made Copenhagen her home.

Emma is very active in the Copenhagen performing arts community. She is passionate about supporting others on their theatrical journeys. We chatted about getting anxious taking care of people and making sure they’re having a great experience.
