Improvisation
IMPROVISATION is the term for the action of improvising. In a technical context, this can mean adapting a device for some use other than that which it was designed for, or building a device from unusual components in an ad-hoc fashion. Improvisation, within the context of performing arts, is a very spontaneous performance without specific or scripted preparation. The skills of improvisation can apply to many different faculties, across all artistic, scientific, physical, cognitive, academic, and non-academic disciplines. Musical improvisation is usually defined as the composition (and simultaneous playing) of music, without prior preparation. Improvisational comedy is a theatre art performed throughout the world and has had on-again, off-again status throughout history. Dance improvisation is frequently used as a choreographic tool. Choreography is also frequently used as a tool for improvisation. Improvisation also exists outside the arts

Theatrics
THEATRE or THEATER is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses , to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of art, such as painted scenery and stagecraft such as lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience. The specific place of the performance is also named by the word "theatre" as derived from the Ancient Greek θέατρον (théatron, "a place for viewing"), itself from θεάομαι (theáomai, "to see", "to watch", "to observe"). Modern Western theatre comes, in large measure, from ancient Greek drama , from which it borrows technical terminology, classification into genres, and many of its themes, stock characters , and plot elements

Plot (narrative)
PLOT refers to the sequence of events inside a story which affect other events through the principle of cause and effect .

Character (arts)
A CHARACTER (sometimes known as a FICTIONAL CHARACTER) is a person or other being in a narrative work of art (such as a novel , play , television series , or film ). The character may be entirely fictional or based on a real-life person, in which case the distinction of a "fictional" versus "real" character may be made. Derived from the ancient Greek word χαρακτήρ, the English word dates from the Restoration , although it became widely used after its appearance in Tom Jones in 1749. From this, the sense of "a part played by an actor " developed. Character, particularly when enacted by an actor in the theatre or cinema , involves "the illusion of being a human person." In literature, characters guide readers through their stories, helping them to understand plots and ponder themes. Since the end of the 18th century, the phrase "in character" has been used to describe an effective impersonation by an actor
