Status is the original cornerstone of Keith Johnstone’s work.  It’s often said that Keith’s greatest contribution to theatre, in general, is his ideas and development around Status. Status is the behavioural quality in all interaction.  It is not a constant.  You aren’t necessarily high or low status.  You are high or low relative to who or what you are interacting with at that moment.  Status moves, alters and defines our relative importance to the people and world around us.  Our friendships are defined by our comfort in altering the status relationship between ourselves and the people we are closest too.  Learning to play with status gives improvisers immediate skill in story and character that few others have. It allows teachers to teach and business professionals to interact properly. Knowing it and using it effectively is an important power to play with as an improviser.

This section of improv’ can be explored after the course, “SPIRIT”.
