The Mama City Improv Festival 2020 has a new home at 44 on Long and a fantastic line-up of funny people. From 11 to 15 March 2020 players from the UK, Canada, and the USA – together with Cape Town’s own brilliant talent – will be performing and teaching this spontaneous, unscripted style of theatre.
Improvisers – and non-improvisers – can watch, play, learn and laugh over five days and nights. The Mama City Improv Festival 2020 will include workshops, performances and spontaneous jams.
And while the adults play, the kids can too! The festival partners, the Courtyard Playhouse (previously the Alexander Bar), will be hosting the Improvised Kids’s Storytime Festival with offerings of a variety of classes and shows for 6 to 14 year olds.
Mama City 2020 will be based at 44 on Long, in central Cape Town. This celebrated historic venue – previously the famous Space Theatre – has been beautifully restored, hosting both performances and shows throughout the week. There is also a bar, and food and snacks available for purchase.
