Showcase: Parallel Improvisation

Description
This is a free, casual showcase of the Parallel show format created by Nick Byrne, a visiting Australian improviser. Performers would have spent 5 hours in workshop with Nick, learning the format before this.

Parallel
(show format)
A very open long-form of any duration. Players work in pairs, developing different threads that are each a different perspective on any given human-interest topic (e.g. gender preference, displacement, climate, fear, anything really). The threads never intersect in any literal sense, and characters from the different threads do not meet. All players are on stage for the entire show and use the entire stage, seamlessly using the space and physicality of the actors who are not in their thread. Frozen characters from other stories may be like a barrier between you and your partner, or an inanimate object to climb over. Sometimes the scenes all happen at once, and a moving character from another scene may sweep across to change your thought pattern or the atmosphere in your scene. The audience has parallel perspectives on a theme. The actors are exploring their spatial toolkit.

Doors for this showcase open at 9.20 pm this Friday (21 July).
