The slightly unhinged but massively talented people at Impropriety (Liverpool’s finest improvised comedy troupe) hosted an improv marathon at the Kazamier on the 10th and 11th of April. With no script or safety net, they improvised a hilarious and occasionally moving show set at a 1950’s holday resort for 33 and a half hours battling fatigue and even mild halucinations.
Heres an article by the Liverpool Daily Post on the event: http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2010/04/09/liverpool-theatre-group-impropriety-perform-33-hour-non-stop-show-at-kazimier-92534-26206190/
Themguidedmissiles was on hand to help document the entire event (aside from a 15 minute cat-nap), manning one of 3 cameras used to create a live edit. I also interviewed members of the cast, crew and directors for an upcoming documentary produced by Opiate of the People Films to track their physical and emotional journey during the event and their reflections in the days afterwards.
In all honesty, I’m amazed that I made it through the whole event without proper sleep but it was an amazing experience to go through that journey with the actors. I cant wait to see what Lee at Opiate Films does with the footage.
