Improbable and the International Institute of Improvisation

Improbable, Britain’s ingenious theatre company built and sustained by impro.

  • Description: Since 1996 Improbable has practiced improvisation in many forms but presented itself to the world as a theatre company rather than an impro company. This is because, to be blunt, people took theatre seriously but not impro. But this approach now feels less useful. Impro / improv has become more accepted; more a part of the mainstream. But such acceptance can also create a fixed idea of what impro is and what it can do. So we think it’s time for the International Institute of Improvisation. It's something that we are only just beginning to grow and it changes how we present Improbable to the world by viewing all our theatre work through the prism of impro rather than the other way round. It’s our way of taking improvisation seriously, as an art form and as a means of facilitating social and political change.
