Boris and Sergey: Preposterous Improvisation Experiment
Six people crowd round a small table to manhandle two mischievous, faceless leather puppets into submission. They flick through Three Weeks before coming to the conclusion that it’s not the best. They act out the death of "alcoholic" Oliver Reed. They ask the audience for a location, a material, a creature, even sound effects. They run around the room and sit with us, drafting in audience members towards certain death. They fly, they commit suicide, they laugh, they copulate. It’s utter madness.
After the class on improv this was exactly what I needed to see, a hilarious show using all of improv’s core principles and more. Audience interaction, dedicated puppeteers, meta comedy, the lot.
