In June 2004, WIT hosted a 5-day masterclass by the world’s greatest authority on improvisation, Keith Johnstone, in Wellington. Bringing together twenty improvisers from around the country, the masterclass was the greatest event in the national improv calendar in 2004. Keith appeared on stage for the first time in New Zealand on Sunday 27th June in ‘The Secret Origin of Improv’. With Keith directing, the night showcased his approach to improv and the talents of the masterclass students. While he was in Wellington, Keith also delivered training for the New Zealand School of Drama, WIT’s Tuesday, and WIT’s militant youth wing, Joe Improv.
