About the Performers
The Play is Singapore's dedicated improv team specialising in The Storyspine - a world-famous storytelling format that focuses the spotlight on character development and circumstantial changes. Directed by Hazel Ho, the team has refined the craft of Storyspining to the T, adapting this already-unique narrative style to captivate local audiences.
'Improv' is short for 'improvisational theatre and comedy'. As the name implies, improv is a special form of theatre wherein no scripts are involved! Rather, the performers have to create their stories on the fly, usually with the help of their audience. This creates a unique experience where no two shows are the same, and where both performers and audiences actively collaborate as part of the storytelling.
About The Improv Company
Founded in 2013, is Singapore’s first and biggest school of improvisational theatre and comedy. We welcome dozens of new students every month, imparting the positive values of “Yes, And” to every new cohort.
Over the years, we’ve also produced and performed in hundreds of improv shows. Our coaches have supported a handful of performing groups; some have gone on to grow as independent troupes, while others stayed as TIC’s House Teams. Internationally, we’ve represented Singapore at numerous festivals around the world. We even host the Singapore Improv Festival, which we produce biennially since 2016.
Ultimately, we hope to keep advancing improv as an applicable approach to daily life as well as a staple form of community theatre in Singapore!
