IMPROLAB Transparencies

The Improlab team plus Ami Yoshide and Sachico M (Japan) finally made two nights of improvised performance at the Studio, Sydney Opera House. The Studio is a tough and unadventurous space, and hard place to find inpiration. Each night we ran two sections of about 40 minutes each. After the first night I was completely drained and after the second I was rushed into a speedy bump out. Our rehearsals were much better than the shows. But the audiences were as expected - half bored out of their minds and the other half totally enthused. Overall I think its the most genuine and rewarding artform anyone could hope to participate in.
