Livin’ La Impro Loca

Matias Avaca (NZ)

Note: Participants in this workshop will be considered for the cast of the show of the same name.

New Zealand’s very own Spanish-language improv company brings an incredible bilingual event to Wellington! Improvisors from Impro Teatro along with NZIF ensemble guests will create never-before-seen magic in multiple languages. Will they get their wires crossed? Will they find common understanding? Por que no los dos!?

Matías Avaca, along with Impro Teatro company members, will lead a workshop teaching the format of Livin’ La Impro Loca and sharing learnings from multi-language performance. English speaking performers will be cast in the performance, and all participants will benefit from expanding their communication skills beyond the verbal. Spanish-speaking improvisors are also welcome to be considered for performance.
