IMPROLABO is an improvisation theater group and workshop/laboratory that began in Tokyo in 2001. Founded by director Takashi Takao with a rotating cast of actors, students and musicians, we simply try to follow improv guru Keith Johnstone’s advice to “give your partner a good time” to foster positive risk taking on stage. Our shows are freely improvised, often funny but sometimes serious, using both short form styles as well as free long form scenes. While the shows are in Japanese, improvised theater is always a visual and physical experience that can be enjoyed in any language, and we encourage adventurous theater goers to come out even if their Japanese is limited or non-existent. We would be happy to meet you!
