ATC Improv is 1 year old! We will be celebrating with a smorgasboard of improv games and special guest performers…
The Ghost Sheep will be making their first foray into longform improv with a format called The Motel, a show where every scene takes place in – you guessed it – a motel room!

There will also be plenty of special guests, including Neil Curran, founder of Improv Fest Ireland, who will be taking audience participation to another level in his show, ‘Neil + 1’.
Last but not least, a birthday would not be a birthday without cake, so stick around after the show and celebrate with us!

Be sure to stick around after the show for celebratory drinks- whether you’re Belgian or not!Remember how we said that our June show was the last one before the summer break? We lied. We will have one last performance, on Belgium’s national day, no less!

BATS: My Boy Jack (17-25 April 2015)

By David Haig
Directed by Jill Franks
BATS Little Theatre, Paardenmarkt 111, 2000 Antwerp

The year is 1913 and war with Germany is imminent. Rudyard Kipling’s determination to send his myopic son Jack to war triggers a bitter family conflict which leaves Britain’s renowned patriot devastated by the warrings of his own greatest passions: his love for children – above all his own – and his devotion to Kind and Country.

‘My Boy Jack’ was first staged at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1997, with David Haig himself playing Rudyard Kipling. Ten years later it was filmed for television with Daniel Radcliffe as Jack and Haig as Kipling.

To commemorate WWI, BATS is bringing this moving play to the Antwerp stage.

Dates
17, 18, 22, 23, 24 & 25 April 2015 – 8 pm

Auditions 17/10 + 21/10

Our Spring 2016 production is Getting to Here by Lisa Ní Laoire.

This is a new piece of writing for the ITG where, from very personal perspectives, we look back over some of the key events of the 100 years which separate us from Easter 1916.

Casting both a cold eye and a tender eye on Ireland…more accurately, lending an ear to the histories and herstories of how we got to where we are now.

We use the voices of Ireland to recount the personal tales which, taken together, tell us something truthful about the short but poignant history since the proclamation of the Irish Republic a century ago.

With story-telling, audio-visual flash-backs and theatre, we explore and preserve some of the more notable transitions in Irish history.

We take a look at where we are now and how we got here.

Narrator (Male/Female) 30 – 40:
Articulate, confident and charismatic. Has strong stage presence. An all-rounder.

Teacher (Male) 30 – 45:
Erratic, wild, miserable  and a touch eccentric. He can’t understand why he became a teacher, which is reflected in his every action.

Student (Female) 23 – 35:
Confident, loud and slightly disturbed. Has experienced too much, too soon without much adult nurturing and as a result has become inconsistent in her speech and defensive about everything.

Church keeper (Female) 48 – 65:
Solemn, reflective and strong willed. Well composed and unshaken by others.

Mother (Female) 55 -65:
Contrary, sarcastic and always right. She is unintentionally funny and often out of touch with anything her children or husband are saying.

Father (Male): 55-65:
Grumpy, defensive and argumentative. He is usually lost as to what is going on and ends up as the butt of every joke.

Daughter (Female): 25-35:
Solid character with a strong personality but often quiet. Has had to fight for her voice to be heard.

Son (Male): 25 – 35:
Class clown and a mammy’s boy. Though generally playful and upbeat he has a dark secret.

Politician 40 – 65 (Male):
Over the top, arrogant and sleazy. BIG personality. Always appears to be shouting when he’s talking. A smile permanently painted on his face

Beauty Queen (Female) 25 – 45:
Diverse role to play with buckets of personality. Extremely extroverted, loves to be the centre of attention.

ECC: Mrs Klein (22-26 Sept 2015)

by Nicholas Wright
Warehouse Studio Theatre, 22 – 26 September at 20:00

Melanie Klein has just lost her son in what appears to be a climbing accident. His death brings the long-standing conflict with her daughter Melitta to a sharp climax. Professional rivalries mix with visceral family resentments – and taboo-breaking psychoanalytic theories. Caught (or carefully positioned) between the warring mother-daughter pair is Paula – Melitta’s friend and Mrs Klein’s would-be protégée.

ATC: Death of a Salesman (7-11 Oct 2015)

DEATH OF A SALESMAN
Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Glenn Vaughan

Marking the 100th anniversary of Arthur Miller’s birth, the ATC is proud to present his greatest classic, Death of a Salesman, for our October main stage.

Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. In the person of Willy Loman, the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity—and a play that compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room.

The Real Inspector Hound
Janet writes:  The Real Inspector Hound is a wonderfully funny play which I am looking forward to hamming up a bit.  I am looking for actors who have either retired from the stage or who have not yet plucked up the courage to perform – as well as some more experienced actors – by allowing the security of lines on stage if this will enhance the actors’ security.  How this will happen is secret at the moment!Subject to availability of the cast, rehearsals will be twice a week, and I would like to have at least one of those as an afternoon rehearsal, perhaps both, subject to progress (ie we might need to add a third rehearsal).Characters
Moon – M or F – any age
Birdwood – M
Mrs Drudge – F – older
Simon – M
Felicity – F – any age up to 50s
Cynthia – F – any age up to 60s
Magnus – M – older
Inspector Hound – M or F any age
Radio Voice – M or F
Body – M or F – No lines, just needs to lie still!  But this is a comedy …
Other – 6 or 7 people to act as audience.Dinner For One
Hugh writes:
  Dinner for One is a two handed sketch lasting 18 minutes involving an elderly lady being served dinner by an increasing squiffy butler. The joke’s dependent upon the old lady confusing the butler with her many lovers: the ending is mildly risqué. Its claim to fame is that German TV executives, catching sight of it live in the UK in 1963, thought it would do at a pinch for New Year’s Eve television. Since then it has unaccountably become a part of required German, Swiss, Swedish, Danish, Faroese and heaven-knows where else’s required Hogmanay viewing. Most northern Germans know it off by heart. So funny little sketch or cultural phenomenon, take your pick.If either of If these plays interests you, please come along to audition!  Janet and Hugh would be happy to hear from anyone who would like to register their interest or have further information.

CREW
We are also hoping to encourage new back stage crew – so if you’ve had a secret hankering to become involved without having to perform on stage, now is your chance to let us know!  We will find you someone to help you along the way, so please don’t think you’ll just get thrown in and left to flounder.  To register your interest, please contact Janet – or just come along to the AGM.

ETC: Amour et Musique (11-14 Nov 2015)

Act 1: “AMOUR ET PIANO”, a one act farce by Georges Feydeau, performed in English, with surtitles in French. Director Hugh Dow. The play hinges on an important misunderstanding between a feisty young woman and a pushy young man, and things go downhill from there…

Act 2: “MR CHOUFLEURI RESTERA CHEZ LUI LE.. .. .. “, a one act comic opera by Jacques Offenbach, performed in French, with surtitles in English. Stage Director Anna Holmén, Music Director Elizabeth Flynn. This small gem of a piece tells the tale of a young couple caught up in her father’s ambition to put on a musical evening to show off to his friends, and what happens when it starts going wrong…

ECC: Dick Whittington (8-10 Jan 2016)

Following on from the successful productions of Jack & the Beanstalk in December 2013 and Aladdin in January 2015, the ECC is proud to present a brand new panto –Dick Whittington and His Magical Cat! This well-loved British tale is (very loosely!) based on the legends surrounding Richard Whittington (Lord Mayor of London from 1354-1423) and is told with humour and energy and promises to be great fun for all the family.

Dick Whittington leaves a country village with his cat, Tommy, to make his fortune in London, where the streets are paved with gold. When he arrives he finds, instead streets overrun by rats.

This launches Dick on an adventure that takes him from London to Brussels and beyond. Along the way, he meets the girl of his dreams, Alice, as well as Alderman Fitzgerald, Sarah the Cook, King Rat and many, many others, including you!

Bursting with humour, songs and magic, this show will delight young and old. Oh, yes it will!

Performances are on Friday 8 January (20:00), and Saturday and Sunday 9-10 January (13:30, 17:00), at the Auderghem Cultural Centre, Boulevard du Souverain 183, 1160 Brussels.

Ο θίασος απαρτίζεται από δύο άτομα, τον Μενέλαο Πρόκο και την Βασιλική Κίσσα, εκπαιδευτές θεατρικού αυτοσχεδιασμού στην ImproVIBE. Ανεβαίνουν στη σκηνή, παίρνουν κάποια απλή πρόταση από το κοινό και δημιουργούν ένα ολοκληρωμένο θεατρικό έργο μίας πράξης εκείνη τη στιγμή. Οι δυο τους. Ναι, παίζουν όλους τους ρόλους. Ναι, δημιουργούν και τα σκηνικά επί τόπου. Όχι, δεν πρόκειται να ξαναδείς την ίδια παράσταση ποτέ ξανά. Όντως, θα γελάς μέχρι δακρύων.

Δύο ηθοποιοί. Αμέτρητοι χαρακτήρες. Ταυτόχρονα!

BSS: Twelfth Night (20-26 June 2016)

‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare
20st-26th of June 2016
Petit Varia Theatre, 154 Rue Gray, 1050 Bxl
TICKETS

Twins Viola and Sebastian are separated during a shipwreck off the coast of Illyria, each believing the other to be drowned. Viola disguises herself as a man for her own safety and enters the employment of Duke Orsino, with whom she swiftly falls in love. Orsino however seeks the love of the Countess Olivia and sends Viola to advance his suit. Olivia for her part immediately falls for this interesting young ‘man’. Thus Shakespeare sets in motion the classic love triangle of one of his most enduring and popular comedies.

Meanwhile Olivia’s disreputable uncle, Sir Toby Belch, has invited his drinking companion Sir Andrew Aguecheek to pursue his own suit to Olivia. The puritanical Malvolio, Olivia’s steward, also harbours designs on his mistress and wishes to see Sir Toby and his drunken friends sent packing. Toby, with the collusion of Maria, Olivia’s gentlewoman, and Feste the fool, plots Malvolio’s downfall.

The entirely unexpected arrival of Sebastian on the scene adds to the confusion, which descends into mayhem when Olivia meets him, mistakes him for his twin, and marries him.
