Created by Pauline Calmé (Paris, France).

Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a little place of chatty people called Blahblahland. They were speaking all the time. One night, a thousand lightning bolts touched each villager. When they woke up, nobody could speak...

Improvisors are known for their quick wit and clever comebacks, but what happens when you take language away from them? In The Curse of Blahblahland, Parisian Pauline Calmé explores a world where all words have been taken away... Physical theatre and spontaneity collide as improvisors from all over the country present the premiere of this international work.

The Curse of Blahblahland is one of NZIF's World Premieres: five brand new experimental works devised by top directors and participants especially for this festival. Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With these incredible improvisors and directors from all around New Zealand (and the world!), you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.

One week. New Zealand’s top improvisers. Almost total chaos.

“This festival blows me away with its skill and generosity... In short it is a breath-taking, giddying display of mastery.” — Theatreview
