Improv Embassy performers hit the stages at Montreal and Ottawa festivals

We are super excited that Embassy improvisers will be hitting the stages at two festivals in the next few weeks.

The seven members of the Embassy faculty — Angus, Chris, Dani, Deborah, Josef, Leslie and Val — will be performing on Friday, Nov. 11, at 9 p.m. as part of Mprov, Montreal’s Improv Festival. Some faculty performers are also performing as part of special festival teams, such as the Armando Jam and the Kiki All-Lady Jam.

TEAD Talks at the Fresh Meat Festival. Speaking of Deborah (who teaches our Intro to Sketch class), she’s got a brand-new piece in the Fresh Meat DIY Theatre Festival that runs Oct. 20 to 22 at Arts Court. Her one-woman 20-minute show is called TEAD Talks, and it’s about “ideas that aren’t always worth spreading.” Fresh Meat is a very cool showcase of new theatrical shows and last year’s edition saw the debut of “Slow Burn,” a one-act improvised play created by Embassy faculty Chris and Leslie.
