WHAT IS IMPROV AND WHY IS IT AWESOME?
Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Improvisers often take a suggestion from the audience or draw from some other source of inspiration to get started. Since the scenes are based on the audience’s suggestions, they have never happened before, and will never happen again. Improv is different every time!
