Iditaprov is ramping up for a side splitting improv summer send off show. A script-defying feat hosted by the Denali Arts Council.
Usually known for fast-paced short form competitive improv comedy, Iditaprov proudly debuts its first feature length long form show.
As you know, Short-form improv involves performers asking for a variety of suggestions from the audience through out the show, then creating scenes and playing games based on each of those suggestions, much in like the show “Who’s Line is it Anyway?”
But in Long-form improv the performers take a single audience suggestion (word, location, song lyric, line of dialogue, or conversation) then improvise an ENTIRE show inspired by that one suggestion. This type of improv creates in-depth characters and story lines that intertwine and weave into each other.
In Talkeetna style long-form, or “Conscious Comedy”, we host a conversation with a guest expert on a public policy or social issue. Following this interview, our improvisers create comedy theatre inspired by that conversation.
On Friday September 4th our featured guests will be Will Peterson of KTNA, discussing funding for public radio, memberships, and the importance of community radio.
On September 5th our featured guest will be Dan Harrell & Kaitlin Palmer of the Talkeetna Elementary PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles Committee will be discussing the healthy snacks program, the Bun 2 Bun run and more.
Each night a portion of ticket sales will go to our guest organization. Come out and enjoy a bit of Theater Without A Net and support some of your favorite local non-profits at the same time.
Theater Without a Net stars a cast of local improvisors (and a special guest or two) creating live, unscripted, comedy theatre – never seen before (or again).
