VICTORIA INTERNATIONAL IMPROV FESTIVAL ALMOST HERE
Scripts? This year’s Victoria International Improv Festival (VIIF) performers don’t need no stinkin’ scripts, and they’ll prove it from October 2nd – 4th, 2008, at the Victoria Event Centre (1415 Broad Street).
Bringing the live, unscripted, improvised funny this year are, in no particular order:
!nstant Theatre (Vancouver, BC) – They hope Victorians will appreciate their magical eclecticism as much as the Germans do;
CRUMBS (Winnipeg, MB) – They’ve had a performance interrupted by the police, which is arguably far less demoralizing than performing in Winnipeg during the winter months;
Dad’s Garage (Atlanta, GA) – Intelligence reports their goal is to steal health care secrets from the Canadian government;
PROJECTproject (Toronto, ON) – Choosing to leave the centre of the universe was tough for them, but it only shows what risks this group will take;
Rosa Parks (Vancouver, BC) – Their pet peeve is “lady-prov”, of which this all-female improv troupe promises none;
SCRATCH (Edmonton,AB) – They’re bringing hospitalization worthy hilarity to our fair city;
Emmett Hall (Vancouver, BC) – An improvisational maestro, Emmett will be adding his musical styling’s to shows throughout the festival; and
The Impromaniacs (Victoria, BC) – They’re the hometown heroes and festival hosts – no pressure.
Full ticket and schedule information can be found on the VIIF website, www.viif.ca.
