“What are you doing?”: How Improvisational Actors use the Body in the Contextualization of the Imagined Material World Public Deposited

Abstract
  • This paper looks at how improvisational actors use multi-modal contextualization cues to create rich and detailed imagined spaces with only the barest of built, material context. Using conversation analytic and ethnomethodological methodologies this paper examines three professional long-form improvisational performances. Beyond speech actors use bodily and visual cues, vocal quality and prosody. These cues become resources for actors to construct the imagined material context, character categories, character relationships and re-contextualize or edit the ongoing action of the overall performance.
