Improsaurus (Dunedin, NZ)

Involving even less preparation than a usual improvised show, everything about this performance will be devised and decided only the day before at Improsaurus's workshop on original formatting. Combining the great minds of NZIF attendees and Improsaurus's vast experience in long-form, it's bound to be an interesting and challenging format!

Improsaurus is Dunedin’s own critically acclaimed improvised comedy troupe. Beginning in 2009 as a group of Otago University students looking for a creative outlet, Improsaurus has since grown and developed, gaining a great reputation within the Dunedin community.

Since 2011 they have performed a fortnightly show at the Fortune Theatre studio to a consistently large and loyal crowd. They have also performed various shows around the country, in 2014 represented New Zealand at the AACT WorldFest in Venice, Florida, and this February in front of a 3000-strong audience at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

Improsaurus’ speciality is its own original brand of long form improv, and fresh, innovative formats developed by the troupe. Now, for the first time, Improsaurus is coming to NZIF to reveal the secrets of how they create a truly unique 90 minute show every two weeks!

"[Improsaurus] achieve a high level of story, playing and entertainment that is now at a world class level.” – Patrick Davies, Theatreview

The New Zealand Improv Festival serves up a smorgasbord of improvised theatre to Wellington, New Zealand, all performed by the country’s top companies and practitioners. With 20 shows in just five days, there's something for everyone - comedy, horror, music, poetry and more!

“Something of value will always materialise before our very eyes" - Theatreview
