To overview # Improv Glossary
"Short Forms" are games that consist of one Scene or a few scenes and, due to their basic conception, only last a few seconds or a few minutes. Contrary to the Longform. They are also called structured games, because the structural elements, especially the specific rules strongly characterize the game, give it its special, typical character, but - from a negative point of view - it can also be very restrictive.
In Theatersport short forms are the forms usually played.
