REACT: 2020: A Space Oddity

Friday 20th November

The Bristol Improv Theatre presents a series of new shows that respond creatively to the challenges of social distancing in live performance. A line up of talented local companies and artists embrace the flexibility of improvisation to create work that is imaginative, immediate, whole-hearted and fun.

REACT is a homecoming for Bristol’s improvising community and a celebration of the resilience of live entertainment, under any conditions.

2020: A Space Oddity

It’s easy to maintain social distancing when you’re alone in space. 

In this newly devised piece of improvised theatre you’ll find two performers but only one on stage. A light hearted exploration of isolation and our growing relationships with computers and AI. 

Devised, directed and performed by Bristol Improv Theatre Associate Artists for the REACT season.

Health and Safety Statement:

We are committed to making our return to live shows as safe and reassuring as possible whilst still providing the excitement and magic of a live theatre experience.

We have renovated our theatre into a cabaret style seating arrangement, with audience numbers capped at 52 so that social distancing can be observed.

In line with the new laws , wearing a mask is a prerequisite for entry to the building (unless seated at your table) and we now operate a table service system for our bar which stops serving at 10pm. 

Hand gel and washing facilities are readily available around the building, including contactless hand sanitisers.

A full list of what we’re doing to make the building Covid-Secure and what we expect from audience members is available here.
