2017 Chutzpah! Festival presents Folk Lordz
“one of the most interesting, compelling and viscerally thrilling pieces of theatre you’ll see this season” - Mooney on Theatre
Folk Lordz promises to deliver high-speed and hilarious improv from two members of the world-famous, Canadian Comedy Award-winning, Edmonton based improv troupe Rapid Fire Theatre. Co-created by Todd Houseman and Ben Gorodetsky, Folk Lordz is an award winning, multi-cultural improv show that brings together the unlikely combination of Cree storytelling, Chekhovian character drama and spontaneous comedy!
For each performance, the recipe is as follows: Take one part Cree or Dene origin story from the Indigenous, oral tradition - Add one part Russian character drama inspired by Anton Chekhov - Stir in one part additional world culture—chosen by the audience at each show - Bake for 60 minutes before a live audience - And the result is a fast, furious, and folksy improv show like you've never seen before!
“…great, creative physicality. Truly, anything is possible in this room, and the magic is palpable." – The Way I See It Theatre
