Vancouver’s Instant Theatre presents The Prototype Festival (Jun 21-24), with some of Vancouver’s best improvisers performing a mash up of new improv formats.
Here are five shows in the festival we think are worth checking out:
Improv isn’t just about comedy. In Dramatic Works, improvisers will create a fifteen minute dramatic play without a script.
This one has nothing to do with the coming winter. Inspired by George R.R. Martin’s food descriptions, improvisers paint a feast in elaborate style.
More Donnie Darko than Groundhog Day, The Loop promises an adventure down the rabbit hole.
A live comedy panel podcast ripped straight from the headlines, John Kerrigan and guests discuss the absurdity of Canadian life.
5Return to Sender
Drawing inspiration from real letters written, but never sent, Return to Sender features two editions featuring office correspondence and love letters.
The Prototype Festival takes place at the Havana Theatre from June 21-24 with two shows nightly at 7:00pm and 9:30pm. Visit http://instanttheatre.com for tickets and information.
