Improbable was founded in 1996 and became a charity in 2014. Each year we have ambitious fundraising targets to meet to enable us to produce the work that we are passionate about. We rely on both public and private funding to keep doing what we do.
All of our work is built around the principles of improvisation, though the scope of our practice is much wider and deeper than "impro" as most people understand it. Improvisatory processes such as Open Space and Worldwork underpin our approach to everything from making opera to mentoring artists, acting to activism, puppetry to participation. The breadth of Improbable's knowledge of improvisation is unrivalled and means we occupy a vital space in the landscape of international theatre.
We create an astonishing range of work, from small-scale improvised shows to enormous outdoor spectacles, modern operas to devised studio pieces, and we take this work around the UK and the world. Alongside our productions, our Devoted & Disgruntled programme brings the arts community together to work on shared issues. Our participation programme takes improvisation to people who have had little contact with the arts before. And the International Institute of Improvisation connects Improbable's work with improvisational practices globally, from the sciences to psychiatry, and supports improvisation as a means of artistic excellence and social change.
