Apr 12: Improvanopolis Presents “The Living Room”

8pm to 9.30pm
🏢 The Merry Lion
💵 S$25
Facebook | Booking Link

Why “The Living Room”? Improvanopolis was born in a simple living room in Los Angeles back in 2006…since then we have had many get togethers just to play, and many of those were in a living room. Some of the best moments we have are just making each other laugh. The Merry Lion space reminds me of this, a small space to come out and see creativity come to life. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that uses the audience suggestions to make scenes up on the spot.


Apr 13: Organic Harold, by Jonathan Pitts & Friends

Harold Improv

🗓️ Sat, 13th Apr’19 (9.30-10.30pm)
🏛️ The Improv Company (62B South Bridge Road)
🎟️ $10 [at-the-door]

Come watch the attendees of the Workshop – ‘Organic Harold’ by Jonathan Pitts – as they bring to life the Organic Harold as Del Close had intended it to be!

When Del Close originally created the Harold, he did so in San Francisco in the late 60’s and then he further refined it in Chicago in the mid-70’s to early ’80’s. The style of the Harold that Del did then is now called “The Organic Harold” which featured a looser and freer structure that explored more in-depth the suggestion given by the audience than the now traditional Opening/3 scenes/game/3 scenes/game/3 scenes/Wrap up style of Harold that has been written about in books. Jonathan Pitts studied with Del Close 3 times, each time for a year. From Del, he learned how to perform The Organic Harold as well as the early origins of group-mind. In a world of Harolds, the original version was more like small batch handcrafted beer, made one Harold at a time, by improv artisans.

There are 9 major philosophies in world-wide improvisational theatre. Each of those philosophies has produced improv theatres, training centres, shows, directors, and performers. Each philosophy is like a different path leading up to the same top of a mountain in which the final view is transcendent and the same, but the ways up can be very different from each other.

This lecture will analyze, compare and contrast those 8 different major improv dogmas, including their similarities and their differences, without valuing one approach over the other. After all, the aim of climbing the improv mountain is to get to the peak, as that’s where best sights are.
