A boutique, immersive theatre adventure for a very select few, created especially for the New Zealand Improv Festival.

You step forward with a giddy nervous excitement, your palm already on the door handle. You turn it, not quite sure what to anticipate on the other side of the threshold. You emerge, soon after, your mind racing as fast as your heart. This is The Intrepid Bazaar.*

Boutique, immersive theatre of the highest calibre

Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night.
