This paper describes our current approach in implementing computational improvisational micro-agents. This approach is intended to foster bottom-up research to better understand how to build more complex agent behaviors in a theatrical improvisational setting. Micro-agent designs are based on our current findings in a multi-year study focused on studying real life theatrical improvisers with an aim towards better understanding the cognition employed inimprovisation at the individual and group level. It also introduces a key architectural component from the domain of fuzzy logic that enables us to clearly represent some of our current findings.
