This tension has been explored by drama theorists such as Keith Johnstone (1981), who attempts to cultivate a form of ‘learnt spontaneity’ in his students. He argues that in order to improvise you must shed the layer of education and enculturation that prevents the expression of ‘true’ spontaneity.
