Impro System Training

In this course, actors, improvisers, and/or directors develop and learn how to apply the Impro System to their artistic processes.  It can be useful to experienced practitioners who want to learn specifically about Johnstone’s Impro System but also for those with limited experience who would like to acquire a set of widely applicable impro tools.  More specifically, students will gain a better understanding of how the Impro System can:

  • Prepare an actor’s body and mind and support the technical training required of an actor or an ensemble of actors
  • Assist directors in focusing actors towards a vision or a solution to a problem
  • Inspire/generate characters, scenes, and other material for performances
  • Sharpen people skills that are useful to all the roles you play in life, on-stage and off
