Improvisation Conversation (2015)

Of Improvisation, Apiary Studios, Hackney


Simon: “What? Oh, no, sorry. I’ve been practicing my impression of Stephen Fry dancing the robot for the past hour, it’s really hard to nail down”
Claire: “Right. Don’t you think you should perhaps be doing something a little more important?”
Simon: “This is crucially important to our performance Claire! Our audience will have full control over my body during our performance. They’ll be able to make me say or do anything they want! So I need to brush up on every possible creation they might come up with. You should be doing the same! You need to be prepared to adapt a conversation with the weirdest possible characters”.
Claire: “Yeah, I think working with you generally covers that”.
