You’ve probably heard of Theatresports or of the Theatresports-inspired television show Whose Line Is It Anyway? But did you know that most of the impro methods used in these popular entertainments originated from the work Keith Johnstone developed for/with professional actors at the Royal Court Theatre in the 1960s? In this introduction to Johnstone’s unique system of impro training, participants will engage in several of his most popular games, exercises, and techniques. This workshop is for anyone who would like to acquire a better understanding of how impro tools can support the actor’s process, inspire characters and good narratives, and develop people skills we use in everyday life!
