Five improvisers, five themes and one Gorilla, an extraordinary night of improvisation.The struggle for directors to attain their vision is at the heart of Gorilla Theatre™ and makes it unlike any other improvisation show in Melbourne.Five improvisers take to the stage with themes they want to explore. Succeed, and the audience rewards them with a Banana. Fail in their role as director, the audience punishes them with a Forfeit. Players might have to 'call their Mother and apologise for being a bad director' or ‘do a Shakespeare monologue on your failure’. Ultimately the improvisers must create theatre that wins the audience over, or suffer the consequences.Devised by Keith Johnstone, creator of Theatresports™, and directed by Patti Stiles, Gorilla Theatre™ encourages the performers to invent scenes that thrill, amuse and provoke, and yes there is a Gorilla as part of the action.Let Gorilla Theatre™ warm your winter Sundays with improvisation that is electrifying, impulsive and unforgettable.
