The Darkest Hour - Vancouver
Three mad muses take you on a trip down classic fairy tale lane. Except this trip is laced with arsenic. A dark morality tale filled with audience participation, strong characters, and black humour. Everyone must die, but some get to do so to the sound of a packed audience’s laughter.
We are delighted to have our very own Festival Ensemble this year showcasing top improvisers from our own city under the direction of the talented Amy Shostak.
Featuring: Annalise Stuart, Amy Prouty, Brian Cook, Drew Clarke, Ese Atawo, Jenny Rubé, Kim Yip, Raquel Belmonte, Ronald Dario, David C Jones, Briana Rayner and Janet Davidson.
The International Ensembles are an opportunity for individual improvisers the world over to spend a week workshopping new and new-to-them improv forms. Dozens of performers apply for a handful of spots and work with guest directors to create evening performances live for you, our audience.
This year our TWO INTERNATIONAL ENSEMBLES include performers who live in Toronto, Phoenix, San Diego, Calgary, Los Angeles, Portland, New York, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal and Vancouver, who have toured across Canada, across the US, and internationally, who are writers, actors, directors, musicians and stand up comedians (when they’re not improvising, of course). They are television stars, Artistic Directors of theatres, comedy and theatre award winners, teachers, friends and lovers. They’re also all gifted improvisers, and they’re all here to entertain you.
One thing is certain — the International Ensembles are groups of people who will likely never all work together again. In some cases, you’d have to travel pretty far to see any of them on their home turf. Now you can enjoy all of them, without even leaving your seat.
