Immediately following the Montreal Fringe and right before the Toronto Fringe, there’s the Bad Dog Improv Summit taking place in Toronto. Without Annette was invited to perform and we’ve sent Marc, Sean and Nick out to play. Everyone else in the troupe is at home, preening.
Note: Marc is also running a workshop on non-verbal communication. I’m not 100% sure but I think it mostly involves making farty sounds with your hands (that’s what I would do).
The first show was last night and it seems to have gone well. There’s already a review up.
…the really interesting thing is that different cities really do have different performance styles. Toronto seems to be more about ‘big’ performers and structured scenes, while the Montreal crew was subtler, favoured props, and had a more relaxed approach to scene construction.
So if you have the time and exist in the Torontospace manifold, go put fun in your eyes and ears.
