"Impro Melbourne challenges and diversifies improvisational theatre. Images heighten the actor's imagination and the actors create relationships between the characters. You will be sure it's rehearsed because the performances are seamless. The skits are poetic, tragic, comedic, abstract, thoughtful, raunchy, provoking and original."
Jane Curtis, an Impro Melbourne student, talks about her first classes.
“I am a huge fan of improvised comedy, so it was a pleasure to see some experts at work in Theatresports, as presented by Impro Melbourne. Theatresports is the longest running improvised show in Australia, having been entertaining audiences for over 30 years.”
“If you have never been to an improvisation show - you must. Every time I go I'm amazed at the skills, talents and depth of knowledge the actors have. How do they make connections to so many ideas and so quickly? From just a keyword or two they never fail to somehow turn this into comedy – it's mind-boggling.”
“I am going to add a new affliction to the medical journals: ‘Face-ache – a condition caused when an individual laughs and smiles for such an extended period of time that their face aches.’ I got face-ache at Sunday night’s ‘Maestro Impro’™, a generous two-hour helping of improvised scenes, skits and masterly impro battles presented by Impro Melbourne.”
“The Impro Melbourne crew have been delighting audiences with their antics since 1996. For 2 decades they have performed and taught nationally and internationally, including in Asia, Europe, the Americas and South Africa. They now bring to Melbourne – for the first time – ‘Grand Theft Impro’ a 55-minute rollercoaster ride of spontaneous, unscripted, short sketches.”
