This workshop explores the forms of improvisation that exist across various disciplines, how they can be observed empirically, how improvisation relates to technology and design, and how communities of improvisation exist and evolve. Through the use of these topics to stimulate discussion, along with group activities founded in theatre and music improvisation, we investigate how the study of improvisation can be used to inform contemporary HCI.
