Run Jul/Aug 2014

The International Improv Experience was a mainstage show at The Hideout Theatre. It drew inspiration from friends of the Hideout around the world.


[edit] Summary

Each performance contained two acts. The first act had the cast responding to video short-form challenges that had been sent in from improv troupes around the world. The second act was a long-form narrative that used the first act as inspiration.

The set design included a number of wooden boxes (and other shapes), which the cast used to create international landmarks and locales on the fly.
