WHAT IS AN IMPROVISATION MATCH?
Based on subjects chosen by an inflexible referee, a selection of professional players from France, Canada and Quebec, for this exceptional meeting, will need to redouble their creativity in a merciless battle… A form of spontaneous expression inspired by the unconscious and by make-believe, fantastic poetical stories, often hilarious, invented on the spot.
The actors face an audience free to indicate its likes/dislikes at any moment. Nothing’s written down in advance and the dramatic construction builds up little by little…
Started in Quebec 40 years ago and modelled on ice hockey games, these theatrical ad lib matches use the ceremonial, the costumes and the referees, the stick and the puck being replaced by imagination, words and gestures.
