Fri, Oct 21st, 8 PM – The Friday Show

The first half of the show will feature “Pixels & Friends” the live cartoon! This show is an improvised real-time animation project. Among the first ever live animation shows blending technology and live improv. It was first presented at the festival back in 2018 it has now premiered internationally. The second half of the show will feature the International Ensemble performing regular old boring improv on a stage with no computers… but it’ll be so good.

Saturday night is all about the futuristic improv experiments. We will be inventing a new show using VR, computers and the magic of improv! Plus we get to see a sci-fi improv show called Project 2 all the way from London (UK)! The future is funny!
