Moderation: Summer Banks, improviser and Berlin English Improv Network founder. IN ENGLISH.

About the Venue:

Ratibor Theater

The Ratibor Theater is the home of Die Gorillas – a 15-person improv ensemble founded in 1997 at the intimate venue in Kreuzberg's Cuvry Str. They perform multiple improvised shows a week in various formats. The Ratibor Theater is also the homebase for Die Gorillas' now world-renowned Impro Festival. The festival is held every spring and invites groups from around the world to share their techniques for and perspectives on improvised theater. In October 2014 the Ratibor began hosting the Impro Embassy: English-language shows with guest performers on the first Tuesday of every month. 

About the show:

No Exit

The unique format of this intimate, two-character improvised piece was inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre's now classic play Huis Clos, known in the English-speaking world as No Exit. Like the characters in Sartre's work, the actors in this format are stuck in a room: they must stay in the same place and events must unfold chronologically. Removing story-telling devices like flashbacks and changing locations focuses the story on the characters and their relationship. Lee White and Matthieu Loos premiered this English-language format in Toronto and then celebrated its critically-acclaimed European premiere in Leipzig in the spring. Berlin Premiere.
