Improvisational theatre (short „improv theatre“) has a long history but still follows the same basic framework: be open minded and not afraid of yourself and others.
Keith Johnstone, the godfather of this genre, once said: „Good improvisers seem telepathic; everything looks pre-arranged. This is because they accept all offers made – which is something no ‘normal’ person would do.“ They can do so by learning that any mistake can be the origin of something great.
This can also be seen as a hack of the traditional arts form theatre: Create something awesome out of something awful.
The mantra behind is „if you fail, fail smartly“ or as we say in Austria <i>G’scheitern</i>.
There will also be a workshop for those who want to try out some improv theatre methods.
