Description

Thinking on your feet is something most people can do. But being so good at it that you can charm huge crowds and win competitions? That’s a rare skill – almost magical. Meet three performers whose art would be nothing without the ability to think on the spot. Hear from rapper Reverse, the reigning Red Bull Batalla USA champion; freestyle dancer Angyil, newly crowned Red Bull Dance Your Style USA champion; and anarchic stand-up comedian Russ Hicks, whose quick-fire retorts to hecklers are legendary. They share what inspires them, and how you can master the skill too. And if you want to know what goes on in the brain when artists are improvising, neuroscientist Dr Charles Limb explains.
