Let's Improvise: Becoming Creative, Expressive and Spontaneous Through Drama

Beginning with simple sensory-awareness exercises in a relaxed atmosphere, and moving through pantomime and role-playing to longer skits, this text emphasizes active self-discovery. Through hundreds of exercises encouraging personal and social growth, the text shows how to transform an ordinary idea into a celebration of life; to try on a variety of characters from life and literature; to take creative risks; to test and revise thoughts, feelings, and values; and to lose inhibitions and build confidence and co-operation through teamwork. These activities are aimed at anyone, including those on stage, in business situations and community groups.
