Improvision is operated and run by Megan Furniss. Megan graduated from UCT with a BA and a performer’s diploma in 1986. After many years of performing and creating conventional theatre she became involved with Theatresports, and started performing improvisation in front of an audience. In 1993 she started her own Theatresports company in Cape Town and has been involved with that ever since. She also became involved with the corporate world and created Improvision, her own applied theatre and improvisation company, with the aim of providing all theatrical solutions to the world of business. Improvision makes industrial theatre, provides the skills of actors at functions, events, workshops and seminars, and most importantly, specialises in applied improvisation for the corporate world.
We specialise in bringing techniques from the theatre into the organisational context to solve a number of commonplace problems, including help with the following:

And the greatest benefit that comes to those who listen is that we develop closer relationships with those we thought we couldn’t understand.
