Improvisers' experience of their craft : A qualitative study of improviser experience of work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien är baserad på nio stycken semistrukturerade intervjuer med deltagare som har eller jobbar med improvisationsteater i grupp i minst tre år. Den tillämpade metoden är kvalitativ. Analysen och bearbetningen bestod utav en tematisk analys. Syftet med studien var att under- söka improvisatörers upplevelser av sitt yrke. De tre teman som framkom genom analysen var ”Känslan av att befinna sig i nuet”, ”Gruppens betydelse” och ”Att föra berättelsen framåt”. Resultatet visade att improvisatörernas upplevelse av sitt yrke hade stor inverkan på dem själva. Detta i forma av samhörighet, självförtroende, flow och kreativt tänkande. Resultatet visade även svårigheterna med att improvisera och hur deltagarna resonerade för att skapa en före- ställning.

Abstract [en]

The study is based on nine semi-structured interviews with participants who have worked or who are working with improvisation theater for at least three years.The applied method is qualitative. The analysis and processing consisted of a thematic analysis. The purpose of the study was to investigate improvisers' experiences of their profession. The three themes emerged from the analysis were "The feeling of being in the present", "The meaning of the group" and "Moving the story forward". The result showed that improvisation as a form of theater has a big impact on the participants in terms of happiness, self-esteem and flow. The result also showed the difficulty of improvising and how the participants reasoned to create a good performance.
