AdlerImprov is for actors, not caricatures. Every art form has its own kind of improvisation. What the improv comedy schools teach is more like writing than acting. Improv Comedy is about saying “yes, and…”, broad characters and identifying patterns, in short: writing fast in your head, that is the opposite of good acting. Great acting demands that you be out of the head and play truthfully, spontaneously, within the imaginary world of the script: clever has nothing to do with it. Our actors are present and alive using their bodies and senses to command their space. We teach actors to use spontaneity in scripted, memorized scenes and get out of their head and into the present through action.
