As part of the Nursery’s dedication to developing new team, players and formats, the Carousel is an opportunity to see some of London’s up and coming stars play. Every Sunday we present four improv teams honing their forms and perfecting their craft. Each team perform four weeks in a row, and each week one team finishes and one team starts their run, so why not come back a second week and see what’s changed?
A selection platter of improv, all free every Sunday early evening.
This week’s line up includes:
The Happiest People In The World - We are a heartfelt duo of non-scripted theatre. We explore relationships in an organic manner. Our stories and characters unfold, as Life does. Our show explores the nature of human existence and the search for Happiness. We put an emphasis on emotions, and silliness.
Improbotics, Ltd -“Improv is a feat no robot could ever reproduce”. Don’t you agree? You need to participate in our experiment. Welcome to the future... At Improbotics Ltd., we build bioengineered Cyborgs. Machines who are indistinguishable from humans, but whose words and thoughts are controlled by an artificial intelligence. This is a revolutionary entertainment machine who can disappear into a crowd of human performers. We are so confident in its skills that we will not reveal its identity: instead, we will let it take a Turing test and make you guess which one of the improvisers is a Cyborg. To make the challenge more interesting, one of the human improvisers, the Puppet, will also be remotely controlled... by another human. Neither the Puppet, nor the Cyborg, will know who is human after all. Come laugh with the machine as you attempt to solve the deception!
