Group Improvisation

The manual of ensemble improv games
By: Peter Gwinn with additional material by Charna Halpern

Age Level: All Ages

Who would have thought that participating in group improv could be so enlightening and rewarding! Peter Gwinn and his colleagues at the i.O. theatre in Chicago have developed The Group Mind to create a new awareness in the mind and spirit of any group or team. The Group Mind, the Holy Grail of improvisation, is created by a synergy between improv participants. It’s like ESP. It’s the feeling of being part of a greater entity, a sense of excitement, belonging, importance that takes teamwork to a new level. Over forty improv games are included in this theatre text for developing group chemistry: creation, bonding, dynamics, energy, focus, and more. Techniques are discussed for breaking the ice, agreement, listening and support, teamwork, quick thinking, and having fun!
