Improv team Deconstructing Barbara carefully observed the entire TEDxSantaBarbara 2018 event, “Yes, and...” and put their own improvisational twist on a TED talk at the end of the event. This is best viewed after watching the other talks.
Deconstructing Barbara is a Santa Barbara, CA-based improv team based out of Santa Barbara Improv. The team is made up of Amy Nash, Garrett Blair, and Evan Asher. Deconstructing Barbara makes up decades of improv comedy, performances and acting experience. They are teachers, trainers, and directors in improvisational arts and are professionals at creating the stories you never know didn't occur.
OUR ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY
NAVIGATING THROUGH COVID-19
The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
At TEDxSantaBarbara, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize two things: the health and the well-being of our community while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and courage informed by the latest science-based information.
As of now, we are postponing our main event in the Fall, to the first weekend in November 2021.
