***

Improv Comedy Theater is a new, up-and-coming theatrical art form in Greece. What makes improv so unique is that the actors jump up on stage and create the entire play on the spot. It relies entirely on the creativity, spontaneity and imagination of the actors. There is no script, no predefined structure, no preselected characters, no safety net. Each play is unique, simply because it is born and it dies the very same night, right in front of the audience.
