  Experimental theatre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Experimental theatre is a general term for various movements in Western theatre that began in the 20th century as a reaction against the then-dominant conventions governing the writing and production of drama, and against naturalism in particular.
The term has shifted over time as the mainstream theatre world has adopted many forms that were once considered radical.
It is used more or less interchangeably with the term avant-garde theatre.

 [No title]
Improvisational theatre (also known as improv or impro) is a form of theatre in which the actors perform without a script.
Because of the unpredictable nature of such a performance and the unexpected events that occur, improvisation lends itself naturally to comedy, and the specific term "improv" usually refers to a form of high-energy comic entertainment.
This is sometimes referred to as "organic" theatre, and is especially favored by creators of political theatre, experimental theatre, and practitioners of drama therapy.
