IMPROLIGHTBOX : WHEN LIGHTS INSPIRE IMPROVISERS !
Mixing his experiences as professional improviser and former light designer, Franck BuzZ, with Thomas Ury's support, imagined a show where lighting atmospheres, randomly associated to sound atmospheres, are the starting plots of each new scene.
« I think about it as a gift for experienced improvisers, a theatrical playground where we could feel free to play with joy and pleasure » Franck BuzZ
In order to provide variety, it combines all types of lighting sources, from candle to videoprojection. All the magic is in the choice of lightning energies, conceived so as to stimulate improv actors and encourage them to release their spontaneity.
« When they enter the LIGHTBOX, improvisers are invited to forget about technical stuff and to focus on celebration of life, love and relationships »
IMPRO LIGHTBOX is played in different languages : international english, mix of languages, gibberish ... and a lot of silence ! Emotions, pictures and body language are universal.
« One of the main ideas of the LIGHTBOX is to share this format with improvisers from all over the world, so you and your guests are more than welcome to come and play with us ! »
Last but not least, IMPRO LIGHTBOX is well-fitted in big theaters, but we also play it in small venues and it's very nice too. Let's discuss about it !
