Flying Pig Improv
Pssst, YOU. Seasoned improviser. You’re looking to stay sharp, have fun and play with other experienced players, right? Here’s the skinny:
Auditions for the performance troupe will be held on:
No need to bring a photo or resume. Just arrive on time for a group warm up and to sign in.
The pig believes that audition experience is good for you so there are two boxes on the registration form. One says “I’m here to audition for the troupe.” The other says “I’m here to audition for the experience.” So relax, and enjoy playing with others who have a similar passion for being in the moment.
TROUPES: This pig dreams of having multiple performance troupes at FPI. And while each troupe will have their own distinct personalities, we will all aspire to bring real, evocative, in-the-moment improv to the stage.
FPI is looking for players who know that short and long form improv go hand-in-hand. We strive to do both at their highest levels.
We play at the top of our character’s intelligence; we make our partners look like geniuses, poets, and artists; we understand what slow improv is and we like it as much as (maybe even more than) the fast stuff.
We are impeccable with our words and use our characters, relationships, objectives, and environment, to do the rest.
We know what it means to be courageous and vulnerable at the same time.
We understand the commitment it takes to join a troupe and to be there for your fellow players. And we’ll work at performance level in practices and enthusiastically take to the stage for shows.
We believe in the importance of fundamental skills and will continue to strengthen them at every practice.
If this sounds like the kind of experienced improviser you are (or truly want to be), say “yes, and” AUDITION for our performance troupe.
Monthly troupe dues are $40. This covers 2.5 hours per week for coached Troupe Practice on Tuesday nights and at least one opportunity per month to perform on Friday or Saturday nights.
This Jam is just for us improvisers. We’ll call out games, you jump up and fill the spots and play with people you may or may not know. Since we’re limiting the number of people, this isn’t a public show; we will be our own audience.
