We had the pleasure of speaking to Ramon one evening where we discusses Salsa Sketch and our connection. This is a show that Salsation does where actors gather together for 10 hours to create a show from scratch.
We break down our co project Word Up, a poetry/improv collusion that brings the best of two worlds together.
