Instant Theatre

Jump to: navigation, search


Instant Theatre Company has been producing improvisational theatre in Vancouver, BC since 1994. The company has a wide scope and broad artistic vision as they have learned from (and continue to learn from) many of the great teachers and producers in the field. They work in both short and long format improv, and in both structured and freestyle techniques. They have performed at many Improv festivals and theatres from Berlin to Miami and Regina to Sydney.

In the nearly twenty years of Instant's history, a lot has changed within the world of improvisational theatre. Instant Theatre Company has both experienced that change and has created some of it, too. By spending time on the road across North America and in Europe, as well as here at home, the company and its Artistic Director Alistair Cook have developed a great blend of styles and a non-exclusionary perspective on how to teach improvisation.
