Galapagos was formed in the Fall of 2003 and is devoted to performing longform improvisation based in strong ensemble work and characters & scenes rooted in truth. Our improvisation is often in the form of Harold, a structure and philosophy of improv developed by Del Close at ImprovOlympic in Chicago, the Deconstruction, the Armando, and include longform structures that we have developed ourselves. Whatever the specific form is, a single audience suggestion serves to inspire our explorations.

Improsia; life... unknown...

Theatre meets instant inspiration when three strange 'observers' of human behavior and their handler Ms. Davenport instantly create a single story that centers on a moral or ethical question provided by the audience. This show is funny, smart, and serious.
Improsia's hallmark is the actors sharing the characters, often swapping roles and moving seamlessly in and out of scenes without warning. Improsia's unique approach to scene transitions is that a scene only is over when ever actor individually is done with the scene. Multiple scenes appear simultaneously on stage. They've even been known to have the same character played by two actors on stage at the same time.

Improsia's show also has a meta-improv layer. It adds theatricality by creating characters and backstory. The main characters are the ones improvising. Every second an audience attends an Improsia show, from the moment they enter the theater, is performance. The show 'begins' before it even begins.

"One of my favorite shows in the country right now."
- Mark Sutton, Artistic Director of the Chicago Improv Festival

"I still think about your trio and would love to have more." -David Shepherd one of the founders of modern improv

"This is improv for geniuses... There a lot of heart in it. It's deep. It's better than improv." -Zach Ayers, writing staff member for Men of a Certain Age
