IMPRO, Berlin’s festival for improvisational theater, presents top-notch improvisers from all over the world and has celebrated the art of international spontaneous theater annually since 2001.
In 2017, IMPRO presents a show that really is a matter of life and death:
“As death approaches, the quality of the time that remains becomes the issue.” Michael Kearney, Mortally Wounded
Afterlife is an experimental performance piece about death, dying and how we choose to live, performed by a distinguished international cast. Through existing materials, original material, spontaneous material and interaction with the audience, the performers hold up a mirror to mortality asking everyone to think about their own lives and experience. Afterlife explores the traditions around death in a personal and cultural way. The cast examines the traditions, taboos, myths, legends and assumptions about death and afterlife as experienced in their own lives and countries. This is an evening of reflection, humor and improvised scenes and stories brought to you by some of the world’s most beloved improvisers, including well-known IMPRO guests like Trixi Brunschko (Austria), Maja Dekleva Lapajne (Slovenia), Randy Dixon (USA) and many more.
