New Zealand Improv Festival presents

Improdome

Improv teams battle it out at NZIF

Each night, four teams of improvisors are at the mercy of Master & Blaster, who issue scene challenges round by round. At the end of the night, the strongest team is victorious. Until they return to defend their title...

Created especially for NZIF 2016, this is our nightly competitive team show, full of scenes and games that could tickle your funny bone, warm your heart, or shock your senses! Anything could happen (but mostly improv). Every night will be different and at the end of the week, we will have our first ever Improdome champion team!

Improdome was devised by Jennifer O'Sullivan and Matt Powell, longtime collaborators, festival regulars, and award winning improvisors (Tastiest Show, NZ Fringe 2016). The experience of Improdome will be familiar to anyone who's been along to Theatresports or Micetro, or is a fan of Whose Line Is It Anyway? but with an added layer of brutality - four teams enter the ring each night, but only one will survive.

"The players are assigned their teams just 30 minutes before the show, and in many cases will not have played together or even met before," says Matt. "It’s a real test of their ability to make each other shine on stage and bring their A game.”

Across this year’s festival every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With a range of shows and directors, and players from all around New Zealand (and the world!) audiences are in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time. Tickets to shows can be purchased via the BATS Theatre website, including season passes (any three shows for $39).
