Stories of the Darkest Night

  • The Random Stage at BATS Theatre (map)

Enter a world created with only sound. A group shared ‘points of view’ tale, starting with a soundscape, and using foley created with voice and bodies. The cast work together, building piece by piece the story of a time and a place and a cast of characters, using only their voices. Performed by an ensemble cast of NZIF 2018 improvisors.

Since Co-Director Ali Little (NZ) discovered improv a decade or so ago she has performed in and produced shows, made short movies, built puppets, masks, a gorilla and a small tardis. She has travelled to learn from Loose Moose in Canada and the Maydays in the UK. Ali is convener for the Meetup group Wimprov and a creative co-director for the Wellington Improvisation Troupe (WIT).

Co-Director Susan Williams (NZ) has been acting and performing for 2/3 of her life; she even has a certificate and diploma in performing arts to prove it. Susan lives in Wellington, is a member of WIT, acts in plays, and makes pottery. The best way to make her happy is to say the words “Doctor Who”, and the best way to make her do something is to tell her she can’t do it because of her functional blindness. Although she has been improvising for several years, this will be her first NZIF, and she is very excited about it.
