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 also delve into the poetry scene of Chicago slap poetry under Marc Smith at the Green Mill.

We break down our co project Word Up, a  poetry/improv collusion that brings the best of two worlds together.
