I am writing this post from Palm Springs, California after spending 2 weeks in Calgary, Canada attending a 10 day workshop with the creator of Theatresports@, Keith Johnstone. At 82 years young, Keith is a wealth of knowledge on the art of improvisation and I learnt so much listening to his life's teaching and pedagogy and putting it into practice through a variety of excellent games and exercises. His main philosophy of 'don't be original, be obvious', reinforced the notion of giving the audience what they expect instead of trying to be clever or imaginative. I'm looking forward to sharing  all what I've gleaned with Theatresports® Central Coast on my return.
