Self Impro vement - Impro: making me and the world better. I've been learning impro for 10 months and I'm in love with it - not only because it's wildly fun (it is), but because impro is helping me become the person I want to be in the world. Impro teaches me to be kind to myself, to really listen to my own and others' needs, to be curious about what could come next and brave enough to let it change my mind and touch my heart.
The next time you see an Impro Melbourne show, once you’re settled in your seat, take a moment to look behind you. Chances are you’ll spot one of our players in the back row, armed with a notebook, trying not to attract attention. Sometimes it’s the director of the show; more often, it’s a member of the cast taking their turn in an important role: the player on notes. With few exceptions, every Impro Melbourne show has a player on notes, because we believe that every show – no matter how successful – has something to teach us.
"Impro Melbourne challenges and diversifies improvisational theatre. Images heighten the actor's imagination and the actors create relationships between the characters. You will be sure it's rehearsed because the performances are seamless. The skits are poetic, tragic, comedic, abstract, thoughtful, raunchy, provoking and original."
