Example text

If you are reading this book as someone who is new to teaching improv, we also highly recommend reading Impro by Keith Johnstone (a life-changing book for anyone). Having an open mind and a genuine desire to see the students improve would also be excellent. You could then adapt the exercises given here into a syllabus for your students, tailoring them as necessary to suit their particular requirements, but we hope not confining them entirely to a classroom or rehearsal room. This stuff was meant to be staged.

One is structural. If the framework of your show includes a mechanism which is constantly reminding the audience of its improvised nature, then it doesn’t rob the show of anything if the improvisers choose to commit to story and character the rest of the time—in fact, it adds to it, because there’s a greater likelihood that they will generate something of power and impact. This is why forms such as Gorilla Theatre, Micetro Impro and especially Theatresports have been so successful. Being apparently competitive, these shows have a built-in mechanism to deal with failure.

Some try to conquer long stories, feeling that short form is unsatisfying. Others feel long stories lack variety and that once you are locked in, you and the audience will be trapped in something that will probably be tedious. There are often arguments between improvisers about which of these styles are better, more valid, more likely to produce work of substance, more entertaining for the audience and more satisfying to deliver. We have been to many international improv festivals and have engaged in these discussions ourselves.
