What is Improvisation?


Sometimes called ‘Impro’ or ‘Improv’ – the root of improvisation is as a rehearsal tool for actors. An actor uses information gleaned from a script to create a character, however to achieve a believable performance often more information is required. Therefore in rehearsals scenes and situations are improvised that are not in the script to learn further how a character behaves.


From this root has grown the skills and techniques of improvising including confidence, body language, story telling, creativity, imagination and use of status and voice.


The ability to be in control and effective when there is no script.


These tools of the improvisor are transferable skills and can be transfered to other walks of life.


It is these transferable skills that form the basis of LiveWired workshops, courses and live comedy perfomances.
