If you knew you were dying what memories would you want to relive? Death Comes To Us All explores the delicate balance between life and death and how death makes living that much sweeter.

The Directors
Katherine Weaver is an improviser, actor, teacher and director from Melbourne. She has been improvising with Impro Melbourne for over 10 years and is currently co-artistic director. She has performed for many seasons with Impro Melbourne in such shows as Theatresports™, Gorilla Theatre™ and Maestro™. Her love of performing is only matched by her love of teaching, which she has been honoured to do in Wurzburg Germany, Wellington New Zealand and Adelaide Australia.

Wiremu Tuhiwai is an improvisor, actor, teacher and a co-creative director of the Wellington Improvisation Troupe. He has been improvising within the windy borders of Wellington for just shy of 10 years. He has performed for many seasons with Wellington Improvisation Troupe and with Best on Tap. His love of improvisation is only matched by his love for other improvisors.

Directed by Katherine Weaver and Wiremu Tuhiwai, and starring a cast gathered together from festival participants.  Part of our Spontaneous Showcase, featuring six seasoned directors bringing their work to life with a brand new cast gathered just days before. Across this year’s New Zealand Improv Festival every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With a range of shows and directors, and players from all around New Zealand (and the world!) you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.
