Improvisation is simply the process of creating and performing spontaneously and simultaneously. By this definition, we are all improvisers.  Since birth, we have all been living life without a script - making it up as we go.

Comparatively, Improvisational Comedy - sometimes called Improv - is a form of theater in which a performance is created in the moment in order to entertain an audience. The details - the context and the purpose - make a difference. Successful Improv requires considerable preparation, and involves learning and using a variety of principles and skills which allow performers to better extract and expand ideas, make them manifest and meaningful, and quickly adapt to a constantly changing environment and new information. These principles and skills - the "rules" of improv - are also very useful in contexts outside of theater and are frequently applied as teaching tools for varying purposes.

In this workshop, I focus on the "rules" of Improv. After a brief introduction to Improv, I explain various Improv "rules", demonstrate each with help from the audience, and then collaboratively (and improvisationally!) explore how the same Improv "rule" might be correlated and useful to various, different contexts and purposes.

This workshop is for any and all! No matter your background, experience, interest, or goals, you’re sure to laugh, learn, and leave with practical ways to Improv(e) Your Self!
