Keith Johnstone

Improv teacher

Keith Johnstone is a drama instructor whose teachings and books have focused on improvisational theatre and have had a major influence on the art of improvisation.

In the course of his instruction, he would tell his students, “Don’t concentrate,” “Don’t think,” “Be obvious,” and “Don’t be clever!” His unorthodox techniques opened his students’ imagination and spontaneity.
