The Art of Improvisation

Improv StageWe can always put the script aside when we feel things are becoming too scripted. Improvisation is the art of creating something in the moment. Improvisation techniques can be learned by everyone and are based on a few key principles, most importantly "yes and" and "truth in comedy". It creates a powerful attitude of affirmation and truthfulness which is particularly conductive to exploring new thought patterns, new practices, new structures or symbols or new ways to act. The technique applies to many different forms of life, communication, expression across all artistic, scientific, physical, cognitive, academic, and non-academic disciplines. In addition to comic relief learning how to improvise may open entirely new doors in our minds.
