We introduce "directed improvisation," a new paradigm for humancomputer interaction (HCI). Users direct computer "characters" with abstract instructions and constraints. The characters improvise behaviors that follow the directions, express their personal styles, and meet other objectives. We illustrate directed improvisation with our current testbed application, a ComputerAnimated Improvisational Theater for children, and discuss its properties as an HCI paradigm.
