Improvisational theater often called improv or impro, is the form of theater, often comedy, in which most or all of what is performed is unplanned or unscripted: created spontaneously by the performers. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all about being able “think fast.” The objective is to, rather, listen deeply and then react naturally. Improv can be used by performers or public speakers to polish their skills, but it can also be used by anyone who wants to practice being mindful, decisive, and silly.
