Impro: Improvisation and the Theater  
  Started at Sun Aug 18 16:25:47 2002
Okay, I know Keith Johnstone is the father of modern improv and all that, but he sure is weird. The first three sections were really interesting and had some good storoes, although it started to feel like a touchy feely therapy section after a while.

The fourth section on masks, WAY out there. I had to stop reading it because I thought I was having an acid trip. Yeah, it's good to allow yourselves to be characters and work in a framework, but it was like he was talking about borderline possession and I just couldn't digest it.

Good stuff to start... just left me a little high (*ahem*) and dry at the end.

Impro: Improvisation and the Theater
by Keith Johnstone

An excellent book for someone just starting out in improv, and worthwhile reading for people who've been doing it for a while. Discusses a lot of basic theory, and explores the nature of spontaneity. Keith Johnstone is best known as the the inventor of Theatresports.


jesse, did you write this review? i am having so much trouble getting through it. on sunday i laid in bed for a while reading parts of 3 different books, and this was one of them.

it has some very high level stuff... and i would consider it a turn-off for beginners. the stuff in this book is far from basic.

there are some incredible things in this book (so far)... but it's not the typical look at improv. it's way more psychological and even philosophical at times. it's a mindtrip. for me, it can only be taken in nibbles.

but don't get me wrong, i still am enjoying it. it just might take a few months for me to read it.

ps, this post looks nice, huh? i like the table feature
