ImproGuise, Cape Town’s oldest and award winning improv troupe will present their fifth, week-long annual improv festival at the Alexander Bar upstairs theatre in Strand Street from Monday to Saturday, March 6 to 11.
Audiences can look for six nights of different formats, with some old and new favourites. New formats include Alexander Abbey – a period drama; “WestWord” – a word from the audience that allows the players to improv travel; and The Show Currently Known as Tribute – an improvised tribute show about a made up band, with real, made up songs based on titles from the audience. Old favourites include Naked Improv , Documentary and Duo’s. Each night is different, so watch one, or watch all.
