MicroCosmic—It’s Improv Li’Dat—one weekend, six unique shows for your viewing pleasure! Chris Riel has assembled a diverse cast of actor/improvisors for this dramatic improvisational production. While some scenes may contain humorous elements, this is NOT a comedy show.
MicroCosmic is an improvised play made up of two-person scenes that get into the meaty, gritty, mundane, absurd, dangerous, pathetic, ridiculous, and all the rest that life and the imagination have to offer, with a commitment to character and situational realness—each scene a microcosm. Unlike many other improv shows, there will be no edits, cuts, interruptions or other common tools of the improv trade—no safety net for the performers; once a scene begins, the players will follow through to a climax, revelation, or resolution. The goal is to produce improv that appears, from the audience point of view, scripted and rehearsed, based on the mere suggestion of randomly placed set pieces, and some audience-inspired scene-change music.
Featuring: Daphne Gasilos, Diane Kim, Eleanor Svaton, Eric Jabarri, James Sigmon, Joseph Lewis, Kitty Hinds, and Philippe Gross, with assistant director William Rauckhorst.
The production will run for one weekend of six performances at Ong King Arts Center in Chinatown, Honolulu: May 23, 24, & 25.
