Theatresports is worldwide phenomena in which drama and improv games are played as team sports. The object of the event is to let your imagination run riot exercise your improv skills and most importantly, participate and have fun.
The top ten rules for Theatresports are: 1) Say ‘yes and ...’ 2) Add new information. 3) Don’t block. 4) Avoid asking questions- unless you’re also adding information. 5) Play in the present and use the moment. 6) Establish the location. 7) Be specific and provide colorful details. 8) Change, Change, Change! 9) For serious and emotional scenes, focus on characters and relationships. 10) For humorous scenes, take choices to the nth degree or focus on actions/objects.
