Simple Rules of Improv

Improv … Simple Rules of Improv

Progress the Action – with Improv “Action begins with the disruption of a routine” (Keith Johnstone)
Focus on agreement and progress – move forward with agreement, not disagreement.

Yes and – In Improv, always say ‘Yes, and’ rather than ‘No or But’.

With Improv, Be in the Now – Concentrate on the Relationships – the actors must stay present in the scene.

Make your teammates look brilliant – During Improv, Use proper Names, Be Specific – Be a Character – Play up to the intelligence of the Character
