5598727Improbable's 21st Birthday Party
DateSunday 29th October 2017
DescriptionOn 29 October, we'll take over one of our favourite buildings - Toynbee Studios on Commercial Street in London - for a celebration of the last two Improbable decades and a peek ahead to the future. The party starts at 5pm with tea, cake and conversation, before you're invited to roam the building where each room will contain a piece of the Improbable puzzle - sellotape to singing, BambinO to Beasts, new ideas to old favourites. You can explore the history of Improbable with curiosities and curious from our shows; rummage through archive and catch clips from our favourites; or create something new, like an Animo-style puppet to add to the collection. At 7.30pm our Artistic Directors, Lee Simpson and Phelim McDermott, will present a truly Improbable performance in the theatre; plus there'll be a welcome drink courtesy of Sipmith's Gin and London Essence Co, bagels, bhajis, a good old dance, and many surprises along the way. We'd be thrilled if you could join us. Tickets are £25 and will get you access to the party from 5pm-10.30pm, a drink on us and some nosh - and in addition we're asking if you'd gift us a birthday present, from £5 to £5,000. "But I don't even get my friends birthday presents" you cry! Well, we're asking for your help. We're hugely excited about the projects on our horizon - not just making new shows but taking them to new places and sharing with new audiences. About developing our participation projects for people not currently engaged with the arts. About continuing the 12-year conversation of Devoted & Disgruntled, making space as open, accessible and far-reaching as possible. And perhaps most of all about the International Institute of Improvisation, our major legacy project that seeks to shape, support and celebrate the future of improvisation. These projects aren't just dreams, but to breathe life into them we need to raise more funds than ever before - including £55,000 in this year alone. So whether it's as small but fundamental as more sellotape or as massive and profound as Access provision for D&D, your presents and presence can help make the future even more Improbable in spirit and substance. Huge thanks, as ever, for your support and friendship, and hope to see you in October.
