Keith in London 2017 (9 Day Intensive)
Having successfully brought Keith over to the UK for the last 11 years I am pleased to announce that I have organised for Keith to come to London for his first ever 9 day Impro School in 2017.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Keith this intensively giving you the chance to work in depth. There will be 1 group for a full consecutive 9 days and strictly 1 course. Maximum group size is 25.
This is one of only two International venues on Keith's 2017 schedule.
There will be the opportunity to explore London's Impro scene & no doubt a theatre excursion or two.

Keith is one of the few internationally recognized authorities in the field of improvisation, great chunks of which he created, including improvisation forms that include Theatresports, Maestro Impro, Gorilla Theatre, and the Life Game. Theatresports is known worldwide, and London’s Improbable Theatre Co. (directed by Phelim McDermot) recently played the National Theatre and toured the UK with the Life Game to excellent reviews.
His book Impro, and Impro For Storytellers, have been translated into many languages.
He worked at London’s Royal Court Theatre for its ten most revolutionary years (1956-1966), beginning as a reader of plays and ending as an Associate Director (with William Gaskill).
He has taught at many European Theatre Schools, including six years at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and each spring for fifteen years at the Stattensteatre Skole in Copenhagen.
Places where he has taught since November 1998 include San Francisco, Brisbane, Sydney, Seattle, London, Hong Kong, Austin (Texas), and Tokyo. He has recently returned from lecturing at the Deuches Institute for Provocative Therapy, and from teaching “clinic clowns” in the Bavarian Alps.
He founded the Theatre Machine improvisation group, the International Theatresports Institute, and was Co-founder of Calgary’s Loose Moose Theatre.
He is a Professor Emeritus at Calgary University.

Terms and Conditions
What can you expect of a Keith Workshop?
“If you’ve studied with me you’ll know what to expect. If not then my book ‘Impro’ will give you some idea.
I’ll teach what I always teach. I try to shape my courses to the needs of the group.”
Keith’s techniques specialize in releasing an individual’s potential within the context of group work. Keith’s work enables people to be more active, spontaneous and flexible. The exercises he will cover work to free the mind.
Am I a suitable candidate for a Keith Course?
It is not uncommon to see groups which include as well as Actors & improvisers - Teachers, Business people, Lawyers, Psychologists etc…
