In celebration of its 11th year anniversary, the Silly People’s Improv Theater (SPIT) and the PETA Theater Center proudly present the Manila Improv Festival 2013 from June 25-30, 2103.
The theme for this year is “Follow Your Feet”, an improvisational theater concept which also ties in with the art form’s return to PETA - the group which first introduced improvisational theater to the country in the early 1970s. As SPIT takes on a new decade of laughter and innovation, the group decided to take a bolder step in sharing the art of improv to bigger audiences through the festival and its partnership with PETA Theater Center.
The Manila Improv Festival 2013 will have six shows featuring the participating improv groups: People's Liberation Improv and 3 Dudes Improv (Hongkong), Beijing Improv (Beijing), Taichung Improv (Taiwan), Xiamen Improv (Xiamen), Zmack (Shanghai), Pirates of Tokyo Bay (Tokyo) and Silly People’s Improv Theater (Manila).
There will be one show each on June 26, 27, 28 and 30 (8 p.m.), while there will be two shows on June 29. Entrance for each show is P400, and will feature three improv groups for each set, performing a variety of long form and short form improvisational shows.
All performances will be at the heart of the PETA Theater Center - at their “Black Box” performance space known as the PETA-PHINMA Theater. SPIT is excited to be exploring this new space with the theater’s flexible and intentionally skewed box theater that offers numerous stage and audience arrangements.
A workshop for both master and aspiring improv actors will be conducted as well from June 28 - 30.
