Abstract

To most improvisational performers, short form is the equivalent of theatre games. Short form can also be referred to as improv games or as spot improvisation—because scenes are made on the spot from audience suggestions. While short form games have the longest history of use in the contemporary theatre scene, sketch-based improv slightly supersedes it as performance, as it took a few years for the games to come out of the rehearsal rooms and onto the stage (Coleman 25).
