ImproLove is an international improv show that is all about love and everything that comes with it.
Special guests Laura Doorneweerd-Perry (NL) and Gael Doorneweerd-Perry (FRA) along with improvisers from the local improv theatre Uniikki Unikorni (FIN) start the night with Stories about Love which uses real life love stories as an inspiration. After that, the audience will be treated to the main course of the evening: Laura and Gael will perform their duo show Object of Affection.
STORIES ABOUT LOVE
What does real life love look like? We collect funny, sad and weird stories about love, dating and relationships and use those as inspiration and a map on a wild improvised exploration into the uncharted jungle of love.
OBJECT OF AFFECTION
Improvised Pixar Love Story by Laura Doorneweerd-Perry (NL) and Gael Doorneweerd-Perry (FRA).
Love is the common feeling which binds together all living creatures on earth. But what if objects could fall in love, have their heart broken or live happily ever after? Maybe a pencil and an eraser can have a future together. Or maybe true love is out of reach for a tea kettle and a chocolate bar.
In this duoshow, we follow the impossible love story between two objects or animals. Will they succeed to see beyond their differences? Will they be accepted in their lover’s family? Will love win overall?
Laura and Gael play strong and physical characters to bring you a universal story of love and its obstacles. A show like a Pixar movie: sensitive, funny and never trivial.
"Object of Affection is a beautiful, sweet, funny, physical show full of heart and laughter created by two absolute masters of their craft. It can be easy for old improvisers like myself to get jaded but watching this show will make you feel like you’re watching improv for the first time all over again. It’s just that magical."
