Improvisation meets Cinema

Usually improvisation theatre is for the moment and the same scene will never be seen again! But this time, we’ll show you something that is magnetised eternally on a little data storage: The impro movie of the correspondent joint project “Should I stay or should I go?”!

Improvisers from five different countries asked the question, why people leave a place or may stay there. They recorded their experiences they gained in exchange with others for the screen.

Cooperating with the Cairo and the Central repertory cinema we’re looking forward to presenting you the result:
On Tuesday, 25th November, 6.30 p.m. at the Central!
