Under the direction of improviser and storyteller Dave Morris, The Paper Street Theatre co. creates improvisation that feels like theatre. By studying great playwrights, and theatrical styles then performing them with no script, our ensemble sets out to change what people often perceive improvisation to be. Some of what we do may be comedy, but first it will be theatre.
Paper Street Theatre has been featured at Festivals around the world, including Vancouver, London, Romania, Amsterdam, and more. They have won multiple awards for their innovative style of improvisation.
What a wonderful season it has been so far! Waiting for Christmas: An Improvised Samuel Beckett was a delightfully absurd way to celebrate the holidays, and XpERIMeNTal: An Improvised Hip Hop Experiment ended up a complete success. We tried our hand at some freestyle rap, and came away better than you would imagine.
Next up is Isle of Cranes: An Improvised Wes Anderson in February. So, until then the new year, happy holidays from all of us here on Paper Street
