In July 2018 Boom Chicago celebrated their 25th anniversary with a beautiful program in Carre.

Tedx Talks: Saskia Maas

Tedx Talks: Saskia Maas

With more than 25 years working in improvisation comedy and theater as CEO of Boom Chicago in Amsterdam, Saskia found herself in the unique position of being able to help her autistic son expand his world and experiences through autism. Inspired by his growth and enthusiasm, as well as the idea that this could help many more families besides her own, Saskia co-founded InterActing to teach children with autism social skills and understanding through improvisation.
