Improvisation is a collaborative method of creating live spontaneous theatre that is always funny, often touching and frequently poignant. Players conceive original scenes in the moment, spontaneously discovering ideas, relationships and worlds between them, based on a stimulus from the audience.
Improv is by its nature participatory, and is emboldened by a diversity within its audiences and performers. ITS aims to provide a space where all people can perform together, embracing the mosaic of Sydney’s multiculturalism, religious plurality, gender and sexual diversity and thriving in the plethora of ideas they provide.
Above all, we believe that improv is and should be an enjoyable experience. Don’t think, have fun. Sign up for level 1 and find out why so many people love Improv Theatre Sydney.
