Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Impro for Storytellers" is the follow-up to Keith Johnstone's classic "Impro," one of the best-selling books ever published on improvisation. In this book, Johnstone takes a further decade of experience as a teacher and coach and explores how an individual's potential can be released in group settings. "Be more boring!" he might yell to a student striving to be original. "Be more obvious!" he could advise a clever performer. These are unorthodox techniques, but ones that are part of the games that have made Johnstone's work uniquely effective in the theatre community. Beyond its strictly theatrical applications, "Impro for Storytellers" aims to take jealous and self-obsessed beginners and teach them to play games with good nature and to fail gracefully. If you've ever been clumsy and awkward, this book will improve your interpersonal skills and encourage a life-long study of human interaction.

Synopsis:
