How it all started

Chapter 1: The Beginning

It was a sunny day in July 2016, when Mary and Flo, met in a park in Munich. They had one thing in common: they wanted to try improv, a form of theater where everything is made up on the spot.

 

They were nervous, curious, and excited. They didn't know what to expect, but they were ready to have some fun. They collected some people, played some warm-up games, and then started to improvise scenes based on suggestions from each other. They laughed, they clapped, they cheered. They felt a connection, a spark, a magic. They knew they were on something special.

 

They decided to meet again the next week, and the week after that, and the week after that. They became friends, they became a team, they became part of something bigger.

 

A year passed, and the group was still going strong. Two of the members, Antonio Lucho and Atanas Atanasov, took over the leadership and made the event even more welcoming and fun. They introduced new games, new themes, and new challenges. They made the group more visible, more accessible, and more attractive.

Chapter 2: The Growth

The group grew bigger and bigger, as more and more people joined them. They came from different countries, different backgrounds, different walks of life. They spoke different languages, had different opinions, had different styles. But they all shared a love for improv, and a respect for each other. They learned to listen, to accept, to support, to trust. They learned to say yes, and, and, and.

 

They started to offer more and more sessions, where they shared the basics of improv to newcomers and challenged themselves with new exercises and formats. They started to organize social events, where they hung out, ate, drank, sang and played together. They started to perform shows, where they showcased their talents and creativity to the world. They amazed, they entertained, they inspired.

 

They became a diverse, dynamic, and delightful community. They also gave themselves a name: Rice Cookie, a name that has a history by itself.

 

They had their first show, the Winter Impro Madness, in 2017, where they had a blast on stage and in the audience. They performed short-form games, they made jokes, they made mistakes, they made magic. They received a a lot of compliments.

 

They later also participated to the shows in the Cave, a cozy venue where they performed for a loyal and enthusiastic crowd. They experimented with different genres, themes, and formats. They did horror, romance, sci-fi, and more. They did monologues, duologues, group scenes, and more. They did improv, sketch, stand-up, and more. They did everything, and they did it well.

Chapter 3: The Challenge

Rice Cookie faced a big challenge in 2020, when the world was going through a difficult time. They had to stop meeting in person, to stop hugging, to stop sharing the same space. They had to adapt, to change, to reinvent themselves. They had to move online and keep the improv spirit alive.

 

They didn't give up, they didn't lose hope, they didn't stop playing. They used technology, they used imagination, they used humor. They created online workshops, where they played improv games through video calls and chat rooms. They created online shows, where they performed improv scenes through live streams. They created online connections, where they stayed in touch and supported each other through messages and calls.

 

They overcame the challenge, they showed resilience, they showed strength. They proved that improv could happen anywhere, anytime, with anyone.

Chapter 4: The Fun

Rice Cookie has a lot of fun, and a lot of memories. They had moments that made them laugh, moments that made them cry, moments that made them proud. They have moments that they will never forget.

 

They reach more than 3100 members, and welcome new members from all around the world. They broke the limits of space, time, and numbers. They manage to play, learn, and have fun with a large group of people. They make new friends, new connections, new discoveries. They make history.

 

They have epic surprise birthday parties for their members, where they give them unique and unforgettable gifts.

 

They have never-ending sessions, where they have at least one session per week in the last 7 years, showing their dedication, passion, and resilience as a group. They never stop playing, never stop laughing, never stop growing. They never stop being Rice Cookie.

Chapter 5: The Family

Rice Cookie is more than just a group; it is a family. A family that welcomes everyone, that supports each other, and that celebrates life through improv. A family that has a lot of love, a lot of joy, a lot of fun.

 

They have a secret, a mystery, a legend. They have a story behind their name, a story that involves two continents, two personalities, and some snacks. A story that only they know, and only they can tell. A story that makes them smile, that makes them curious, that makes them Rice Cookie.

 

They have a motto, a slogan, a mantra. They have a phrase that sums up their philosophy, their attitude, their spirit. A phrase that they say at the end of every session, every workshop, every show. A phrase that they say to each other, to the audience, to the world. A phrase that they say with a smile, with a wink, with a heart.

 

They said: "Mistakes are promoted!"

 

They said: "We are Rice Cookie!" 😊
