Join us for an in-depth exploration of the foundational principles and practical techniques of Keith Johnstone, renowned author of “IMPRO: Improvisation and the Theatre,” and the visionary behind Theatresports™, Maestro™, Gorilla Theatre™, and The Life Game™.

Led by William Hall, co-founder of BATS Improv and a dedicated student of Johnstone’s work, this intensive workshop will delve into key concepts such as spontaneity, narrative development, status dynamics, and the transformative power of masks.

Drawing from Hall’s extensive experience studying with Johnstone and directing The Life Game™ in Poland under his guidance.

Keith said, “many performers want to be on the stage, but they don’t want to be in the scene.” In this intensive participants will gain valuable insights into the art of fully engaging with scenes.

This workshop is not only beneficial for performers but also for educators interested in incorporating Johnstone’s teaching methods into their own practices. Prepare to deepen your understanding of improvisation and enhance your creative abilities in a supportive and enriching environment.
